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.

Memorial Day.

They gave all their tomorrows so that we may have ours.
