Memorial Day


This shows the USS Selfridge, which my dad served on during World War II. I always think of him on Memorial Day. My dad did not die during the war, but so many other dads did die, and continue to die. I found the article below, which is an account of the Pearl Harbor attack, written by the captain of the Selfridge. I am particulary touched by his closing remarks, which I challenge you to read without getting a lump in your throat.


Also in honor of Memorial Day, enjoy this rendition of the Nation Anthem sung by the Dixie Chicks at the 2003 Super Bowl. Enjoy!

Hi Chris, thanks for the comment re the quotation on the flower image. The image was a close up I took of some of the flowers in a bouquet my hubby bought me for my birthday in June.
