Memorial Monday

The purpose of today's holiday in the US is to remember the men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. Especially at this time, we wish to honor the estimated 5,885 who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan during the past 10 years and also the many who have been injured. As Spitty's Mom points out indirectly by his comment, it is a good time to honor all who serve or have served, whether they were killed or injured, or fortunately not.

This picture is from last year with my American Flag and catnip, because this year's nip plant is still small.
