Friday Forager Faves: To All Who Serve

6 May

I know it’s been quiet around here the last few days.  George & I are down to less than two weeks left in Florida and things are getting a bit harried.  But I didn’t want to skip this Friday Faves, due to its importance.  Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen the headlines that earlier this week US Navy Seals found and killed 9-11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden.  While I am glad that this evil has been removed from the world, I would prefer to focus attention on those who give their lives so that we may be free.  So, here are a few favorite images that, for me, evoke the emotion of what it means to risk your life so that others gain freedom.
