An American Tribute

As we all know yesterday was the anniversary of 9-11. Many in our great country made tribute to those who lost their lives. There is a town about 20 miles from here & they place an American Flag around a pond for everyone that lost their life on that terrible day of 9-11, 2001. I happened to be in that town today & couldn't resist taking photos of this old buffalo wallow. Yes this pond once was a buffalo wallow here in the old wild west. I love these flags, so graceful & elegant. These flags transform this wallow into a beautiful surreal scene. So enjoy the photos of this American Tribute. This is my friend Lisa, she was with me today, so I caught her admiring the beauty of these Grand Flags.
The duck on the left had the funniest tuft of hair on his head. Below is a closer view of the duck. He looks too funny!
I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful American Flags, what a great tribute. Hope you all have a great weekend! Hugs***Renea

Thank you Renea for that. We all get so caught up in our lives that we don't stop and remember....that terrible day and all that was lost. Thanks for making me stop for a moment.

I'll never forget that day. I remember watching the t.v. and thought I was in a horrible nightmare.

Beautiful tribute.. I hope we never forget!
