Every headstone in cemeteries across our nation and around the globe tells a story.
When I walk through cemetaries and come upon a veteran, soldier, military serviceperson’s tomb stone I pause and read the names aloud, it’s my way of ensuring I never forget the ultimate sacrifice these patriots gave in defense of freedom. While I’m standing or sitting by these tombstones I have this voracity to know their story. Please, if you have a veteran living . . . ask them “what’s your story?”, it will keep you connected and its a sense of honor to listen.
Happy Memorial Day To All Those That Served and Gave Their Lives For Our Freedoms
The perfectly lined headstones, I have a fixation on lines – anything that stands in perfection. These headstones all stand for something more. They stand for bravery, the honor for country and they stand for selflessness. They tell a story. The story of a Hero. Every Hero has their own unique Story. And every Hero means something to somebody. This is the weekend we recognize those stories, and salute those families of those Heroes, for sacrificing what they love to make sure we stand on Land of Freedom today.
