***  From Heather Murphy:


I'd been to visit my little nephews, my brother and his beautiful wife in the greater San Diego area.  One of our favorite activities is to visit the tide pools at Point Loma (San Diego, CA).  To get to Point Loma, you have to pass a few military establishments and the most solemn and beautiful of burial places — Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.  It overlooks sea, land, military installations and, inasmuch as burial ground can be beautiful…it is.


As we left the tide pools, crews were getting Fort Rosecrans ready for Memorial Day services.  With exhausted kids and adults on board, I made my brother stop his vehicle so I could take the attached photo. 


When I returned to Arizona and uploaded the image, I was stunned to see this almost accidental image.  It is about the real meaning of Memorial Day.  I wouldn't trade those days with my family but I didn't really honor and pay tribute.  By sharing this photo, I hope to do so.  May it serve as a poignant reminder that Memorial Day is not about car sales, furniture sales, clothing bargains, pool parties and barbecues.  It's about remembering sacrifices by the anonymous men and women who served in defense of our freedom.  We may never know them, their stories or be able to thank their loved ones personally but we can do this…we can remember and honor their lives on Memorial Day.


Thanks and appreciation to all who served and all who value their service.
