Then the guns open up and flames light the sky


Note:

  • This morning’s post, in honor of our Veterans.
  • “You stand in a trench of vile stinking mud / And the bitter cold wind freezes your blood / Then the guns open up and flames light the sky / …Flashing red tabs, Brass and Ribbons galore / What the Hell do they know about fighting a war?” —  from a poem written by C.S.M Sidney Chaplin.

  8. Our sunrise this morning was pale pink. It appeared and just as quickly vanished.
    May our gratitude and remembrance of those who sacrificed everything so we could have so much remain as strong as your sky this morning.

    Your photos are beautiful and a fitting tribute to this day. Thank you.
