Foto Friday--Always Remember

Gettysburg, 1863. I reflected on all the lost lives, changed families.  Such devastating loss--over 11,000 casualties from one battle alone.

Then my mind wandered to 2011.  There may be fewer casualties, true.  But there are still heroes, still loss, still mourning families.
Take a moment today to remember our modern-day heroes and their families, standing sentinel over us and our country.

Thank you.


  1. Thanks, Jen. We are definitely taking the time to do that today.

    Happy Veterans Day!


  2. November 11th, at the 11th hour - and whenever we see one of our young people in uniform....

  3. Nice pics of Gettysburg. It's an awe inspiring place.

  4. That is a beautiful picture. I love the shadow.
    Wonderful to remember and honor those who have given so much.

  5. Thanks for the beautiful reminder, Jen. Living in a country that doesn't celebrate Veteren's Day makes it easy for me to forget the significance of November 11th. I have friends who fought in the war in Iraq and many of them came back safely. I should send them a quick note of thanks for all the bravery that they have shown :)
