I have always had the utmost respect and love for soldiers and their families. I have been, personally, touched by family members and friends who have sacrificed to provide my family with the freedom that we have come to enjoy and frankly, take for granted.
This past week….it has been an honor and a privilege to walk along Arlington Cemetary to see all the people who gave their lives for our freedom. Humbling.
We saw the changing of the guards. Humbling.
We also were able to see the ceremony that takes place when the wreath is placed. Humbling.
There was a funeral, taking place….the gun salute. Humbling.
There were soldiers on black horses with their black carriage, carrying a soldier’s body. Humbling.
It. Was. All. Humbling.
When you see a veteran or someone who is active in the military. Shake their hands. Thank them. When they are with their families. Shake their hands too, and thank them as well. The families sacrifice so very much.
Here are a few pictures from this trip.
