MEMORIAL DAY CROSSES ON THE BEACH IN SANTA BARBARA
The first and the last pictures are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank, and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it. Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.
‘Heavenly Father, thank you for holding our troops in Your loving hands. Thank you for protecting them as they protect us. Thank you for blessing them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us every day. For all these things, and more, I am so grateful. Amen.’
GOD BLESS THE FALLEN ON MEMORIAL DAY!
