The savory aroma of grilled meat fills the lawns and parks throughout America. The sounds of children laughing and playing creative games echoes through streets and countrysides. And it is just that this day be filled with joy and celebration. It’s the very thing that blood was shed for on the gritty battlefields. Having never served myself I can’t know what it is like to be in that situation. I’ve seen it in the eyes of friends and family. And on the faces of those who have that empty chair at the dinner table. We have only the moment we are in to accomplish anything that we do but Memorial Day is for those who gave all of their moments at once to buy our future. My grandfather made it home from WW2 by “the skin of his teeth”. And on patriotic holidays he always encouraged us to live a good life because that was the goal of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. So here at the closing hours of Memorial Day I want to take a moment and give honor to those who gave me their moments.
The grave in tonight’s Feature Image belongs to William Johnson. A soldier of the Revolutionary War. He made it to 1805 so he was not killed in battle however if I remember correctly he passed away from complications related to his wounds.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
