memorial day~

today is memorial day.
mum, dad and i went to the beach and we paid our respects to the fallen soldiers that fought for our country. dad also said that some of those little white crosses represent some of his friends that have passed away because of the war in iraq. the red crosses are for soldiers that passed away in afghanistan.
here are some pictures mum took (i stayed out of them because it's not about me today). click on the pictures to see larger versions please.
and let us not forget all our war pups:

p.s. i hope everyfurry is having a safe holiday!

To see all those crosses on the beach is so beautiful and yet so sad that it makes me want to cry.

What an amazing tribute.

YES! Let freedom ring from our mountain-tops to our valleys and from coast to coast. Let us NEVER forget the sacrifice of those who came before us, and those who serve now, so we may enjoy the freedoms of our beautiful country!

Luna what an amazing post - it is a beautiful tribute to those who died to fight for us but it is also sad to see so many had to do so.
