My tribute to Memorial Day! We watched the PBS concert in Washington DC tonight...well, not all of it because I forgot it was on. It is a terrific show...it has been on for 20 years now and never fails to bring tears to my eyes. One of the last things they play are the military branches' songs and those in the audience from the perspective branches stand and sing along....very moving!! Reminds me of road trips with family when we would sing all the songs...in the days before DVD players!
I love to visit Washington, DC...we have been there twice now and I could go again and again and see things I hadn't seen before....really makes one appreciate being an American!! Our last trip there was when the cherry blossoms were in bloom..what a site!! We also saw the WWII Memorial...so impressive..this pic kind of tells it all.
