Memorial Day

I was just so touched by these ladies. I couldn't do this, I could be a professional cryer, I couldn't just go and be so dignified, I'm sure I'd make a fool of myself. I tip my hat to the commitment and so very important a role these ladies play in respecting those who gave their lives so that we might be free.
