~ In Honor of November 11th ~

Today is a Special Day. A Day for us to take the time and remember those who have fought for our freedoms. Especially those who have given their lives for us. I know that many Vets browse through my pages, and I am truly honored. Your sacrifice is beyond measure.

I have to add something. Some of you may have been around long enough to know this about me. November 11 is a personal day of mourning for me as it marks the Anniversary of my little brother's passing. It's been 18 years, and some moments are still as fresh as the day it happened. If you've lost a family member, you know all too well how it feels. I'm not gonna go in detail here as I just wanted to mention, but if you are interested, I did write a short story about him last year. Here is The Link.

Back to my Remembrance Day / Veterans Day Post...

I looked for pics that would possibly have special meaning for some of you. I love the ones that show humour and camaraderie. But most of the pics are awesome examples of Human Spirit, Courage and Resiliency. So many untold stories.....

HELP!! Bring a Shovel!

Just kidding ;-)

We did get more snow last night, and there's a few inches on the ground. But nothing to be concerned about. And certainly not enough to prevent me from posting.

Something else was on my mind yesterday. I kinda felt like hiding away. Laying low I guess. I did put a Veterans Day/Remembrance Day post together. But I never got to posting it, so I will today. I went looking for pictures, and I found a whole bunch. Even more then what I put in the post. I couldn't pick just a few, so it's a long one. And each and every one of those pictures spoke to me in some way, even if I'm so far from grasping what any of it was really like. I don't think anyone who hasn't lived it can truly understand. I just hope they'll mean something to you. Ultimately that's what I aimed for.....

In Honor of Veteran's Day...

“We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

Thank the soldiers, who cling to their guns and religion…
so that we might be free.

I apologize for not posting this yesterday. I wanted to find one that "felt" right to me. I got this one off MOTUS, it gave me chills. 

November 11 is a very conflicting day for me. This year, it marked the 17 year anniversary of my little brother's passing. I made a short story post about him on October 8, his birthday. No matter how many years pass by, the pain never really goes away...
