Memorial Day 2015
Gold Star Pin Awareness
The small white fabric hangs in the window. A simple star is all that adorns it. To the trained eye this is not a decoration, it's a declaration - this home has a loved one "over there" fighting.
Except ... this star is gold. Inside lives a family whose pain is without measure. The ultimate price has been paid.
Few images are as haunting yet poignant.
They gave all their tomorrows so that we may have ours.
