The Widdershins

Archive for May 28th, 2017

Good day Widdershins and yes this is Memorial Day weekend, when we honor those men and women who have given their lives in duty to their country.  Enjoy your barbeque, potato salad and whatever other fixin’s you will have, but take a moment to pause and reflect on those who gave their lives for our country.

The quote in the headline is by Thomas William Parsons of Boston.  I have never heard of him previously but his quote was liststed on a site of Memorial Day quotes and I liked it.

Here are a couple of others that we may or may not think of on this day:

to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan –
from Abraham Lincoln’s 2nd Inaugural Address

And I liked this one from Longfellow:Boy Visiting Grave on Veterans Day

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast,
And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.

What I’m going to do today is to put up a series of pictures of our military from the various conflicts our nation has engaged in.

What I was looking for, for this post, were pictures/photos of the *people* in the war.  Obviously there are tons and tons of them out there, but I just chose those that seemed to attract my attention.

veterans-who paid priceWhether a veteran has served in a “good war” as some say or a “bad[?]” war, they have all served and those who died gave us the ultimate sacrifice.  So let us pause and reflect on that, and on those they left behind.
