Memorial Day

Please post your images, poems, and art with your interpretations of Memorial Day. I'll start us off with a painting and a short story link. Hope you enjoy.

The Poplar tree, which gets it name from the ancient Romans name Populus was the practice of planting these trees near public meeting places due to its fast growth and magnificent size. The Poplar was often planted along rural roads to commemorate fallen soldiers. Their proud upright stance and long life (100s of years) made them living memorials. Sell Art Online

Sorry to hear that Michelle; wouldn't have even occurred to me that there was a negative aspect. Your flowers are lovely, and your memories precious.

Is it just a mid-west tradition to visit family graves on Memorial Day?

I have no image to commemorate those service men and women that have fallen in the call to duty to their country. I am just honored that I had friends who gave their all to that service - and humble that my number wasn't called instead.

Having spent some time in both Sharpsburg Maryland, and Waterloo New York over the years I'm surprised to find I don't have any images from either of them handy. But here are two Civil War monuments, one in New York, and one in Mississippi. And one in Gettysburg for good measure.
