New York City Visit

We just returned from visiting family outside of New York City.  One rainy day we ventured into the Big Apple to tour the 9/11 Memorial and Plaza.  The rainy day was befitting the somber feeling one feels looking at all of the names of the brave Americans who lost their lives that terrible day.  Inside the museum, there are various artifacts from the original towers, as well as photos of every person who were lost.  Every American should make it a point to visit the Memorial just once in their life.  We shall never forget!

Living Legacy Project to Honor Civil War Dead

The Living Legacy Foundation has undertaken an ambitious memorial to the more than 600,000 dead from our country's Civil War. The Project plans on planting 620,000 trees in the next 50 years to honor those killed in battle and well as those who died from war related diseases.  The project is part of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership that aims to highlight the rich history along a 180 mile long, 75 mile wide route from Pennsylvania to Virginia.  Each of the fallen soldiers will be honored by name through each individual tree, though many were unidentified.  Contributors of $100 can select a soldier to honor.
