Happy Memorial Day from Suzi's World!
In Memory and In Honor of every man and woman who has served and who is currently serving our country.
May you always feel the appreciation of a grateful nation for all that you sacrifice. And, may the day come when there is peace in this world and your service is no longer needed.
This reminds me of my Granddaddy Price's grave at the National Cemetery in Chattanooga.
When I was a child, every year I would go with Daddy to pick up my Grannie and take her to the grave site. Grannie always had flowers in her yard, and her hydrangeas were always blooming in late May. We would pick a big bouquet and take them to decorate the grave. Then, as the years went by and my brother and nephew became involved in the Boy Scouts, they would always take my Daddy to place flags on the grave.
While I find this image to be very moving and emotional, my sincerest hope is that the day will come when there are no more soldiers graves to be decorated with flowers or flags.
