Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day
6x8" watercolor on paper. NFS
This is truly the National Holiday
which effects us all.
I am grateful for the freedom we enjoy,
but brought at such a cost.
With great respect
I honor and thank the living military and
and give thanks to all those families
who make the sacrifice and especially
those who have lost their loved ones.
Proudly a US citizen,
originally from England (a long time ago)
and have watched the
ceremonies from London...a day ahead because
of the time difference. It is called
Remembrance Day there and everyone
wears a poppy.
For Great Britain, it is 100 years ago
that World War 1 started.
A small but valiant island.
Helped to survive by a strong and
loyal ally - the USA.
