Favorite {Photo} Friday #49--Remembering

It's Memorial Day Weekend! Three days off! Barbecues, beer, pool openings! Bratwurst, popsicles, watermelon! Suntan lotion and bug spray!

Oh, and this:


This Memorial Day Weekend, remember to remember. Remember to be thankful. Remember to thank a veteran. Remember to thank a veteran's wife. Remember the men and women who are across an ocean fighting right now, and the husbands, wives, children, and parents left behind here. If you know anyone in that situation, call them up and thank them. Drop a card in the mail. Write a note in your calendar to call them in two more weeks, and two more after that. Just to say you're thinking of them. (I have quite a few calls to make and e-mails to send this weekend.)

Here are some of my favorite photos of the many memorials here in D.C.:












[The first, second, third, and last photos taken by me. The fourth, fifth, and sixth photos were taken by my dear sister-in-law, Angella. Thanks, Ang!]
