Memorial Day 2012

I am operating a little behind schedule this year if you haven't noticed. We have been enjoying soccer, end of school activities, and this beautiful Minnesota spring. Life is truly sweet. 
Memorial Day, especially, seemed to sneak up on us this year, but as usual we took the time to go to the National Cemetery here in Minnesota to remember the men and women who have served our country. It has become a cherished tradition for our family. This year I was struck by the words engraved on each headstone. I imagine family members put great thought into what few words they could put that would encapsulate their loved one and their life. The words still probably don't do justice, but I found them to be an incredible tribute. Happy summer...

Life with Kaishon said...

Gretch! I was waiting for this. I even came looking last night to see if I had somehow missed it. Kaish and I went to a graveyard on Memorial day this year inspired by you. I didn't take pictures. I wish I would have. Thank you for the inspiration.
