I thought this image would be fitting for today. in the States, we observe Veterans' Day, most of the rest of the western world calls it Armistice Day... either way, it's a day when we should stop and remember, if only for a moment, the heroism of those who have served and sacrificed to ensure our freedom. this is a cemetery in Normandy, France, where lie some of the American soldiers who fell on D-Day. the cemetery is huge; this view encompasses but a small part of it. it is aresting placefor American soldiers only, and even at that, it holds only about 40% of those who fell during that "longest day", the invasion of Fortress Europe in June of 1944...

Brings me back memories of our trip to Washington DC at the beginning of summer. Sorry this is a couple days late but we should never forget. This is a shot of Arlington, wish the sun would have given a better lighting for this, but it does still convey the same thoughts...:

I instilled in my children when they were very young the importance of Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Peral Harbor Day, just to name a few. Now they are young adults and when we talk on these days they alwaysrecite the importance without asking, its a good thing. May God Bless allthe Veterans.
