Fun Monday has taken a patriotic turn this week, given that Fun Monday is also Memorial Day. Our host, The Church Lady set forth this challenge which is both easy and difficult:
the assignment is to post a photo of something patriotic or post a photo honoring a veteran.
When I was a girl of about 12, my grandmother took me to Washington, DC. She attended a conference for some of that time and the rest of that time was spent touring our nation's capital. One of the places she took me was Mt. Vernon, home of George Washington. It was beautiful and sat high up on a hill so you could see for miles and miles and miles.
Standing at the edge of the hill, looking down, this is what I could see - for miles and miles and miles, it seemed... Little white gravestones of fallen soldiers.
Even if you don't go to a parade or fly a flag, stop for a moment today and think of the sacrifice all those sons, daddies, husbands, friends and brothers made so that we can be free today.
Go visit The Church Lady for this week's participants and see what patriotic scenes they come up with! Also, if you're so inclined - we need a host for next week. Please volunteer over at Church Lady's blog or here!
