Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives-
enormous price for freedom
Gray clouds in morning



*An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but 
we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

    Grey clouds this morning here. Recognising their bravery was a good thing to do. Yes, what a price.

    Too often overlooked while people are enjoying the sun. Had it not been for much sacrifice..........
