memorial day parade

Memorial-Day-Drummers-at-Parade-2011

I wish I had some good shots of the veterans walking in the parade yesterday. everyone applauded them as they marched by. one of the vets thanked everyone for coming out. it was very touching. it was equally touching to see others marching in the parade paying tribute to the men and women who have lost their lives serving our country as well.
to share a part of your world or just see more of others, please go to "that's my world tuesday". a big thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, and sylvia.

I love a nice "local" parade, don't you? Your shots are wonderful, Lily!

Lily, I love your shots of the parade

That's nice the vets appreciated the thoughts. I think I either spoke or wrote to a vet who said that walking in the parade was not necessarily the funnest thing for them, or maybe just him in particular. He just wanted to stay home! :-)

I think you'd love, love, love Santa Monica. It's a tough place not to love. I'm not sure I could live there though, I'd be too afraid my brain would turn to mush!

Very nice to have a parade to pay tribute to all.

This is very moving. Our veterans don't have a day on which they parade, apart from being part of Armistice Day on 11 November.
