Single Frame Stories – Hero

1 Hero_043

How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, By all their country’s wishes blest! . . . . By fairy hands their knell is rung, By forms unseen their dirge is sung.
William Collins Quotes , Source: Ode, written in 1746

Thanks to all who have given their service – and their lives – for our freedom. This is my entry for this week’s Single Frame Stories Blog. The prompt is “Hero.”

This photo was taken at the Operation Enduring Freedom Memorial in Second Life. Please visit this memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives in Afghanistan. It is focused on American soldiers, but I consider it a commemoration for all who have fought and died there.

Special thanks to my sweetheart, who not only served, but helped me choose a fitting image for this entry.
