Election Day

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers.
Francois Fenelon


Hi everyone,
While I was antiquing one day, I ran across a beautiful white wooden glass shadow box. Inside were perfectly pinned Military uniform patches, buttons and medals. I wondered who the mother was that lovingly placed those items there. Each one was aligned, shined and clearly displayed with care. I am really into authentic military pins to wear on my jackets right now. What caught my eye was the Grenade pin. How unique...

Now as I look at them, I think how sad...
Sometime they'll give a war and nobody will come.
Carl Sandburg

This week we voted 
and this week we also honor our Veterans. 
A double-edged blade is a war. Peace and love 
go out to all who have seen war and also those who still suffer due to war. 
In remembrance...
May our Vets have peace.

Oh sweetie, I wonder what the story is behind those glorious medals! I'm sooooooooo envious of your find and would also wear them with absolute pride. You look amazing in the shirt and scarf and I love your photo treatments - you're so good at this photography lark! xoxoxoxo

What a wonderful tribute to Veterans without glorifying war, Reva. I got a little teary as you described the mother proudly displaying the shadow box. We have so much to be grateful for, and thank you for the touching reminder that one of those things is for our troops and those who served, and have served our country.
