PhotoHunt - Memorial



The purpose of Memorial Day, which will occur on Monday May 31st, is to commemorate U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. This picture was taken at the Essex County 9/11 Memorial in West Orange, New Jersey. In addition to honoring those who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11, I think this soaring eagle statue is fitting for remembering those who died while serving the United States in the military. May they all be remembered for their sacrifice.

  8. Sorry I'm late getting to your PhotoHunt post. I just want to know if you, as a cat, weren't terribly tempted to jump on that bird??? Seriously though, great take on the theme and I hope you have a great weekend.
