Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Vietnam Veterans Memorial, originally uploaded by David A G Wilson.

All too often, Memorial Day is used as an excuse to party – the start of a new summer season – but it’s worth taking time to remember that this day is really intended for us to remember and honour those who have given their lives in the service of their country (as a foreigner, I don’t specify any particular country here).

This picture was taken at the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Washington D.C., undoubtedly the most moving memorial I have ever visited, and I think it beautifully sums up the day.
