and I have this totally cool screen saver that makes my lame photos rock. Totally. We blew through DC on our way to NJ and as you may not know its one of my favorite cities. Well yeah I do have a few. bwahahaha! I love the memorials and finally, only because Tom knew, how to get the Marine Memorial. It sits on a rather inconspicuous corner near the Arlington Cemetery of which I would never think to look. Its totally awesome as are all the memorials in DC. Really. If you've never been, you need to put it on your bucket list.
The details totally absorb you, and although my boy is Army it speaks to all. On my totally cool screen saver that makes my photos rock, it flashes between DC and my family Thanksgiving. And it warms my heart and takes my breath away that there are so many brave men that have given their lives for our freedom. My darling sweet firstborn is one of them. I'm so glad that even though NOTHING can replace them that there are memorials that honor them. And that they remind us of their sacrifice. Daily. God bless them and their families. Always.
