Arrow Bonus Photo Challenge #4 ~ Show Your Colors!! {4-22-09}

Patriotism is usually defined as one's love of and/or devotion to one's country. Hmmmm... and that gets me thinking of the Red, White, and Blue along with summer BBQ's, fireworks and baseball!

So how about a challenge for Patriotic photos? Here in the US, we've got a several holidays upcoming that are perfect for them! Show off your colors and let's see your Patriotism!


Upcoming US Holidays:
Memorial Day - May 25
Flag Day - June 14
Independence Day - July 4
Labor Day - Sept 7
Patriot Day - Sept 11

And if you live in another country, we'd sure love for you to share any sort of patriotic-type holiday/events with us!

Spent some time yesterday at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary in San Diego. The Boy Scouts place a flag at each grave, and it was beautiful.



More photos are on my blog.

One of my favorite pictures of devotion to one's country. Her husband was deployed on an aircraft carrier for 7 months, and had just landed.

The beauty of our nation and all of its magnificent landmarks remind me just how blessed we are to live in a land of freedom under a powerful and almighty God. Whew, what a place!
