Memorial Day, 2012


The cemeteries in this small town in New Hampshire are bedecked with flags and red geraniums today - the parade starts at two o'clock, and most of the town follows the parade from one graveyard to the next, pausing for a loud gun salute, and playing of Taps at each.  To those who served and continue to serve our country, thank you, -  you are never forgotten.

And that's what it is all about, Katrina. Your pictures are so moving. Thank you for an inspirational post.

Thank you, Marianne! What a great turnout this year - it seems to get bigger and bigger, so I think many people feel it's a moving, emotional link to our pasts, and a way to show honor, respect and sorrow.
