Memorial Day

A knickknack, a memento from when I visited Gettysburg back when. It reminds me of the fields, the silence, the monuments, and the history. That same trip we visited Arlington, and so in a way this little brass cannon reminds me of that, too.

I remember these things, things that tie me to history, and I honor those fallen to preserve that history, those who have served it, and those who serve it now.

  1. Thank you for the reminder, it is too easy, as a nation, and as individuals, to forget.
