Memorial


I stumbled upon this Saturday while wandering around in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.


There were no people around to ask, but it might be something they did for Memorial Day.

Really great pics... love all the flags & white crosses... sad, but you know what I mean... I'm really bum-fuzzled right now trying to do this blog space thing... i'm so sorry.

I found the Organize button, Amy, thank you soo sooo soooo much! I knew there was a way to do it, but I just could NOT figure it out... I know they won't show up on the blog anymore & I hate that, but this will just have to be a lesson learned to resize my pics from now to take up less space!

I can't see something like that without thinking that every one of those names on the markers is the name of a son, a husband, a father, a brother, a daughter, a wife, etc. - someone loved and missed.

Wow, those are gorgeous! I love seeing things like this. Sometimes I think we forget too easily.

Great photos. A beautiful, but solemn reminder of the tragedies of war.

Amazing and sobering... I like your perspective on the photos.

I saw this done as a Scout project once. They covered an entire high school football field with names of family and friends of the people who lived in the area.

I agree it really makes a statement.

Beautiful shots, but so sobering when you see a name on each one.
