Memorial Day 2015

Remember the fallen and while you're at it, spare a thought for towns like Itasca, Texas, with a population of around 1,600 people. That's their War Memorial above, with the last marker reserved for the Gulf War and Iraq. I think Afghanistan has been added.

My photo from 2009. I think Afghanistan's been added -- I may be wrong.

There's a lot of names.

If you're not moved and perhaps unsettled by that, there's something badly wrong with you.

May they Rest in Peace,

Very unsettling.

Itasca is TINY. For Itasca to have lost so many people in war is unsettling. I was there last month with LSP and walked the memorial, which is quite large, and on the main street in the small, sleepy hamlet.

I was taken aback by that memorial.
