Lest We Forget...

Edit: Not my photo, sorry. Wanted a photo of Flanders Fields, and forgot the link in my insomnia state, but the thought remains the same.

Awesome photo.

There's a National Cemetery in the city where I work, and there were Veterans Day ceremonies there today.

In the past, I've taken kids there for photography class field trips, and those rows and rows of white headstones are a sobering sight, prime time to discuss sacrifice, liberty, patriotism, and all sorts of high-sounding virtues that sometimes mean little without visual aids.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh dear. That's not my photo - I knew I forgot something when I posted this up. I'm slipping, I'm afraid.

It's an excellent idea to take kids to a National Cemetery to show what it means to be free.
