Tribute

Tribute

In memorial of those who gave their all.

Today I'm participating in the Photo-Heart connection for May... I'm sharing this photo I took for Memorial Day in the US. While it's always signified the start of summer and the beginning of the beach season, we must never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can live freely and in peace. We must remember all they've given and respect the values they fought to protect.

A lovely sentiment and tribute. and it is indeed important to remember. Lovely image with the red rose on the American flag.
Unfortunately wars continue all over the world and many innocent lives are still being lost.
