In Remembrance of Memorial Day

Memorial day 016-Edit sky1

Young cadets preparing to raise the flag in tribute to the men and women who died while serving in the United States armed forces.
I’ve been attending this Memorial Day observance  held at the Chino Community Center in Chino CA. for the last five years now,  and it never fails to be one of the most moving events of the year.
So for those who served and are still serving, I want to take this time and say “Thank You”.

“Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.”
— Daniel Webster

Stay Strong!

Day 59 of 365

Free Books

Woke up Sunday morning and wasn’t in the frame of mind to deal with the L A traffic to cover an event in Long Beach, so I headed to the Family Book Festival in Chino just a few miles from my house and I must say the kids and adults that attended were having a good time. It was nice to see children that haven’t lost their love of books and education.
Quote of the Day:
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. ~Robert Maynard Hutchins
