So before we set off to a joyful day of picnics, veggie hotdogs, friends, and beer...
I thought it appropriate to remember the meaning of this day, and Emily Prince's work is the perfect work to both inspire us and remind us...(i know i have mentioned her before but it is such an amazing project it is worthy to mention again)

The website is thorough and I encourage you to research through it.
Regardless of your politics, as we hug our loved ones today just take a moment to remember those who fight and lose their lives so that we can live with such freedom.
Enjoy this beautiful day......
