Weekend Snapshot: Happy Memorial Day

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling
which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse."
(John Stuart Mill)

  3. A beautiful reminder Sandy! It's a great shot too and I do love the quote. It is a nice pairing of words with the visual.

    Happy BYBS and I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

  4. We salute all of our Patriotic men and women who willingly lay down their workaday lives, not necessarily just their physical lives, to defend this nation with all they have in them...it makes us all family!
    On Memorial Day, we salute them all!

  6. Fantastic reminder when many just think of a long weekend instead of why we have it. I will be going to a wonderful ceremony tomorow to honor all men who laid down their lives in the past and a special salute to those who lost their lives this past year from our county.

    Today, in church, we were asked to stand if we served, if we were a parent of one who served, or a relative of one who served. Almost the entire church body were standing.

    Long may that beautiful flag wave. I am prod to be an American.

  13. Happy Memorial Day, Sandy!
    Excellent post, but may I say I don't agree with the words of John Stuart Mill? For me war is the ugliest of things.

  17. I love the photo; the shadow across the flag is so fitting for the quote about war. (Excellent quote by the way--true and so worth remembering!)
