Memorial Day

"This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my sacred shrine.
But other hearts in other lands are beating,
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine. . . .
Oh hear my song, oh God of all the nations,
A song of peace for their land and for mine."
A friend shared these lyrics and I liked them so much I wanted to repost them here.  I took this photo today at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.  Hundreds of Boy Scouts and other volunteers worked yesterday to place a lei at each and every one of the nearly 50,000 gravesites there.
