Remembering Those Who Have Served

She slowly emptied the contents of the bag and with great care placed each part until the arrangement was complete.  Her task complete, she stood back for a moment, then left as quietly as she had arrived.  The simple gesture of leaving a thing of beauty there for those who have fought and died through the decades warmed me inside. I am thankful for their sacrifice that I may enjoy the Holiday Season once more.
