Memorial Day

I don't say "Happy" Memorial Day since this is not a happy day. 

And don't forget - it's not just men and women who have given their lives for this great country.

We visited the Great Lakes National Cemetery yesterday - here's my post about it. 


  1. Your post reminds us that this is really not a day about barbecuing and not having to go to work. Well done. Also, I like that you mention the sacrifices of the non-human soldiers who gave their lives as well.
    I'm visiting from the A to Z list. My team's blog is Poetry of the Netherworld.

    1. Thanks for coming by! Sometimes I feel even sorrier for the animals, since they did not volunteer for that duty, but they did what they needed to do, just like everyone else.


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
