Memorial Day Wishes

A sad day, to honor fallen heroes, to remember all those wars fought which may have not had a victor, but the sides grew tired of dying and decided to make a peace of sorts.

This is a day of remembrance for me. Of all those I've loved and lost.  Never lost anyone to a war, thank goodness.  But I knew many naive young men who learned how to make war.  And I've lost many people and animals who knew how to love.

My winter view

I hope someday there will be no more wars. That is my wish.

My summer view from my nest


  1. Yours is the very best Memorial Day statement, exactly what I would say.

    1. Thanks Gary. Being a pacifist has kind of gone out of style these days.

  2. We need to work for peace with as much energy as we use making war!

    1. Thanks, I was going to say the same on your post today, but you've moderated it to not take comments, apparently.

  4. Thank you, Barb, for this lovely, thoughtful post.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
