Saturday Centus - 25 May 2013

"There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people."
- Howard Zim

Welcome to my Sunday edition of "Saturday Centus" from Jenny's Off on my tangent" blog.

Today in honor of Memorial Day weekend her prompt is, "All gave some.  Some gave all."
Our centus  in 106 words, any style writing and any photos.

All gave some. Some gave all.
Some are still giving.
I went to visit my father on Friday.
My father was a very proud Navy man!
Memorial Day was always May 30th
But like many holidays we honor them
on the nearest
If you ever get a chance to attend a 
Memorial Day Ceremony
do it.
It's warm-hearted process is lasting.
We honor those who fought
alive today or not.
My belief, is to remember our flag,
The United States of America.
In my mother's words
our flag should always wave in honor
and never be made into shirts or shorts.
A very art worthy post you'll want to see
my mother would approve of the children's art I know it!
Patriotic Art

Wise words
Be Above Board
Beware between the Devil and the deep
Carry on
Ships Ahoy!
For more Saturday Centus go here
and to the Republic for which it stands
one nation under God, indivisible,
with Liberty and Justice for all.

We commemorate the men and women who have lost their lives while fighting for our liberty on May 4th, the day before Liberation Day. Some people take liberty for granted, I wish they would visit one of the war cemeteries.

That is a great quote from Howard Zinn, and this post is a fine tribute to your dad, Karen.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to watch a Memorial Day ceremony while we were on vacation.

It moved me to tears.

Your father sounds like a wonderful man.

Thank you for sharing a bit of him with us.
