Memorial Day 2018

I never go to a War Memorial Cemetery that I don’t cry.

 As I look across a field of 100’s sometimes 1000’s of graves each with a small flag representing a life given that I might be free it is very personal for me.
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty." – President John F. Kennedy
Most enduring for me is the sight of a loved one longingly looking at a grave stone surely thinking of what was and what might have been.
I’ll be out at Bay Pines Monday, probably later after all the hoopla is over to spend some quiet time.
It is comforting to know love never ends because a life is given in service to us all.
