Snapped while walking with one year old Kitty.
THIRTY YEARS AGO, while walking on quiet paths outside the Washington D.C. Beltway, I often came across military veterans who shared stories with me. One theme of those stories concerned the hope that people would not forget.
When visiting friends in the States, I hear the words "service" uttered with respect. It's something that would warm the hearts of those men I met years ago walking Lake Braddock (in the photo).
So this year, a few of my Christmas cards will be sent to
A Recovering American Soldier

Because I know they need to know people an ocean away respect their service and the sacrifice that has caused them to remain in Walter Reed during the holidays.
