Memorial Day, a day of remembrance. Yes, never forget!!!
We as a nation get caught up in the holiday aspect many times with picnics and sales at stores and forget the true meaning of the holiday. I think though in some ways that the men and women who served would be OK with it because it celebrates family togetherness and freedom. I may not be saying it in the most articulate way but I know you get the core of what I am trying to say.
Very nice and so appropriate, Gabriel....:well done.
Bravo, Gabriel...beautifully done.
Thanks. I happened upon it and I thought it was very touching.
Good morning, everyone.Bruce had a tear in his eye when he saw this post. His father was a Veteran and Memorial Day is one of those times when Bruce misses him most. His dad planted a red and a white rose every Memorial Day since Congress declared it a national holiday...white for Remembrance and red for Valor. Bruce and I have continued the tradition since his dad passed away. We plant them in the park near the memorial and look after them. It isn't much...just 2 men honoring the memory of a man that served his country; a man we both loved.Heroes never die;They live in our hearts forever.-Bryn
Beautiful comment. It speaks volumes that it remains a tradition for you both to remember him like that every year.
