Memorial day, May 29, 2017, each year we gather to celebrate the memories of those who gave their lives for our freedom. It is a day where we take the time to remember all those who fought to keep our enemies at bay and lost their lives in the process. Without their dedication, we would never have beautiful views as which I have provided here.
This has been a long-standing tradition – below is a picture I found from 1870 of their celebration of the day. Things have changed so much from one picture to the next. I have to stand in awe and gratitude at the progress that has been built upon those who have given everything – something I could never do.
