Faces of freedom


The Memorial Day Tribute at the Downey Cemetery was a time to remember, to acknowledge the sacrifices of those who chose to serve our nation. I was touched by the veterans who attended the service yesterday. For me, it put faces to the people who helped secure the freedoms I now enjoy.




Thank you for your sacrifice and your service! Thank you for not giving up.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave...

  1. First, I want to tell you how much I love your blog! Your photos are beautiful. I write about frugal, simple living and I may come by and ask you if I can use photos from your flickr stream (attributing you and linking back, of course). In addition, thanks for this post about Memorial Day. My family was in Vietnam:


    This tribute means a lot!

  2. Thanks for your gracious comments. It's always so nice to get feedback. And thank your family for their service for our country. I also had family in Vietnam. And, my daughter is currently in the National Guard.
