Veterans Day

It is Veterans Day today. Since I don’t live anywhere near Washington DC, I thought I would visit a place in Second Life that is set up to honor our Veterans.

The Vietnam Veterans Wall….there are so many names on that wall. It’s such a sad thing to see…but I also think it’s important to remember the sacrifice that was made for us and for our country in the name of freedom.

The Three Servicemen Memorial…a representation of all the men who have fought to preserve our freedom.

VNWomensMem_1

Women’s Memorial – a memorial to the women who served in the Vietnam War, usually as nurses. Here they tend to a fallen soldier.

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!!!

Imagine there’s no Heaven 
It’s easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there’s no countries 
It isn’t hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I’m a dreamer 
But I’m not the only one 
I hope someday you’ll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I’m a dreamer 
But I’m not the only one 
I hope someday you’ll join us 
And the world will live as one 

Imagine lyrics by the Beatles.
