Abena (Illinois, United States) on 7 June 2016 in People & Portrait.

This ones a late post and a tribute to those who lost their lives and all the fallen heroes through the years.
I took this in D.C last December and the list of names seemed to go on and on and on forever...with the ever present realization of what they stood for.
It's important to be grateful and realize what's important in life -

It's good of you to remember those who lost their lives in WWII. They are the members of the "Greatest Generation" who actually saved democracy as we know it. A beautiful image.

Important to focus on what we have in the now than what we don't have and what happened in the past or what will happen in the future. Recognize the past, appreciate them, and all. Lovely picture Abena!
