Last night, I was struggling with what to say for this Memorial Day post. In the past, I’ve shared paintings that have been done to commemorate Memorial Day. I’ve posted pictures that I’ve taken of the flags that always show up in people’s yards on Memorial Day. I’ve never really been happy with any Memorial Day posst that I’ve done. How do you capture the enormity of this day, especially at a time like now. I’ve always been a patriot. I love this country but right now, we’re so divided that even I sometimes worry about the future of America and question whether we’re ever again going to be a united nation.
Then, I came across this picture from Getty photographer John Moore.
It said everything that needed to be said about why this day matters.
Thank you to everyone who has served and who has sacrificed.
