A fitting tribute to a great hero! Lest we foget. I wish our world didn’t have to endure senseless wars.
It is a fitting tribute! Lest we forget…. yet we do.
This is why war endures. Grief endured & lessons learned by one generation oft seem lost on the next, then completely unknown by the the generation after.
Of course $ has a lot to do with what we are taught to remember or not.
Then there are cultures that have only ever known strife and war. Some from there care naught for a good life for all humanity, but only for their own kind.
Giants proposing peace and love such as Gandhi & John Lennon are assassinated.
The chain is as strong as the weakest link. We are a world that is as peaceful and loving as the most hating and warlike.
We must each teach the better way within our small lives, as hope may not be enough.
Much love and peace to you, friend!
What an inspiration!
Thank you, Cindy! I agree.
Lovely tribute, thanks for sharing!
TY, and much love, Eva!
Yesterday, 11th hour of 11/11, I was in a department store. It was lovely to see all standing still for the remembrance. Lest we forget, indeed.
What a gracious tribute, Resa..
Standing still at 1!,11, 11! I would have loved to have been there with you at that moment.
How wonderful, Resa. Lest we forget. Just wonderful.
I can’t forget. Sick as war is, it seems most of those who served and died were not those who started or perpetuated the wars.
My stomach churns and my heart bleeds.
Wow, these are so wonderful! A powerful tribute. To all the veterans – thank you for your service!
Thank you, Inese!
A great mural, and powerful tribute as well…
Very moving!… sending love & best wishes, dear Resa, Aquileana ⭐
