Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Cemeteries & Tombstones – 08/08/17

This week the topic is Cemeteries and Tombstones.

During our second visit to Arlington National Cemetery this past Independence Day we made the arduous climb across the massive cemetery to witness the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. On this particular day there was families placing wreaths in memory of those resting forever here.

While I am just a touch too young to have witnessed the splendor of the Camelot presidency I do still find all the mystique surrounding the Kennedy’s to be intriguing. We swung by the Eternal Flame on our way up to the Tomb of the Unknown.

If the neat rows of tombstones doesn’t affect you while at this solemn place you have no heart. Often there is heard the sentiment that freedom is not free and everyone that occupies a piece of space here knew that very well.

You know I had to include some kind of model railroad shot and I remembered this little scene from a train show in North Carolina. The quality is not so great because I think I was in a hurry that day and did not think to retry the picture this year.
