Memorial Day...2010 !


All the fancy words have been said.

All of the speeches, all of the parades, all of the praise...all finished! Only one thing remains. Perhaps the most important thing of all! A final tribute for the remembered that says more in it's simplicity than any other!



Have a good Memorial Day, everyone! Fresh coffee on the patio!

Being deaf (almost)I couldn't understand the words but the music brought tears. Thank you for sharing with us.

I never forget but I still don't approve the way things are. Never! Life is a gift, which must be honored by all for all. If control by a few of the many disappeared, I think we could all live in total peace. Greedy ones ought to taste the flavor of "Sufficient".

We must never,never,ever forget those that paid for our freedom with their blood and courage. Today is their day,a day we must not also forget. You also can't get more patriotic then John Wanye. Thanks for another great lesson.

It drew tears, Uncle. Given my mom was/is one of the greatest Duke fans ever, it ain't no wonder.

Slainte, friend!
