Memorial Day

This picture was taken several years ago, and it is still one of my favorites.  Kara was marching in the Memorial Day parade with her brownie troop.  Just as the parade started, Kara held her flag up high and excitedly  started waving it.   It is easy to forget what this day is really about..  a day to remember those who fought and died for our freedoms.  Many of us spend the day cooking out with our families and friends. While we are doing so, let's also be like that excited little girl who waves her flag proudly.   I hope you have a Happy Memorial Day. 


  1. Great photo! I haven't been to a Memorial Day parade since I was a kid. I don't even know if they have one where I live now. But they do have a service at the local cemetery and invite the public. Wonderful post. Many people DO forget, but it's so important to remember.

  2. This picture was actually taken 6 or 7 years ago, but I still love it so much. We have a parade in town that several scout troops walk in with veterans and the high school band. It is short with a serious tone and message. We have not marched for a few years, since two out my three kids are no longer in scouts.


I would love to hear from you!
