A Memorial Blue Monday


Smiling Sally
Bringing you a Memorial Day special for Blue Monday.

My feature today is of a National Cemetery in our area. This an awesome sight, especially during this holiday. You will find a lot more great blues at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com




On these walls are the names of all the lost loved ones.

Military cemeteries are always so touching. It's inspiring how many have served our country with honor.
Have a lovely holiday,

If a cemetery could be called lovely, this would be it. An amazing picture of the plane formation, did you take it?

My parents are buried in The Baltimore Md. National cementary, it is so inspiring to visit and see the flags flying at each grave. It is a reminder of how lucky we are for our Freedom!!! Happy Memorial Day LV

I just had a chat with my sister in Pueblo. She was sad because the cemetery where our folks and other loved ones are buried is a shambles. Critters digging whole right over graves, weeds, dead grass, a sad affair. I am at least happy the national cemeteries are well cared for. It is so sad corruption is evident even in death!
I use to be amazed, as a kid, at the rows of perfectly manicured graves with plain, simple headstones and the flags! Oh I love those flags!
Your photos are beautiful and this message is clear without our military, we would not be here.
I hope your day is beautiful and filled with good family moments.

I love the planes! It revived my dream of taking flying lessons.

When you live in a country that hasn't been to war for 200 years, it's so hard to understand the meaning of all the killing. All that sorrow. Terrible.
