Last October my friend Kathryn and I found this little garden while walking the streets of Boston. It is in the area of the Old North Church and I was deeply touched by it since I have a son who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. My father-in-law is also a veteran of the Korean War. I am so thankful to have my men around me, safe and home, but my heart breaks for those who do not. To all the mothers and fathers; spouses; sisters and brothers; and daughter’s and sons of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen out there, my heart goes out to you. To those who have served or are currently serving, I honor you and thank you for your service.

Our World Tuesday 


  1. I am grateful for families like yours and mine that have so many who have served in the military. My brother is on this third deployment to the middle east. God bless America!

  2. A beautiful memorial indeed and another reminder of the wonderful men and women that have and are serving our country. Thank you for sharing!


  3. The memorial is beautiful. Love post and tribute to those who our serving our country. They are very brave. Happy Memorial Day!

  4. What an amazing and also dreadful sight Kathie, that is a lot of Dog Tags. Sadly we continue to lose more each week. Never a week goes by without hearing another report on the news. God bless them.

  5. This is a very beautiful post, both visually and in its expression of sadness for precious lives lost. Although I fear i won't see it in my lifetime, I hold out hope that there will one day be world peace.

  6. So very moving, Kethie. I am so glad your friend found this!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
