The most fitting words and image for today – and one for which I take no credit. Thank you to Boblobslaw. And thank you to all who deserve our unending appreciation and remembrance today.

The Digital Garden


The Rising Sun of Hope to all of those who have served. To all of those who have lost someone, or something.

The ones still risking.
The ones still bearing heavy burdens.
The ones seeking Glory.
The ones who seek to Protect.
The ones who seek and destroy, Our enemies.
The ones who will endlessly be never-ending.
The ones who go unspoken.
The ones who are recognized.
The ones who don’t know.
The ones who are one.
We are One.

This is a dedication to our Veterans, and Active service military.

The Rising Sun is a Hope that I hope gets granted to all of those who deserve such remarkable admiration on this day.

Please spread this article, and image to all of those you know who have served, and are still serving.

The Rising Sun still gives HOPE.

  1. A beautiful tribute, thx for sharing Mimi. My brother is active duty Air Force, so I know firsthand what this brave men and women endure for all of us. They truly deserve our appreciation. Bless all those who serve and those who support them.

      • I agree! Thank God your son made it home safely. My little bro is a plastic surgeon and has done tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately he’s had a front row seat on the catastrophic cost of war. May they ALL come home safely–and soon…..

  2. I can’t even imagine what he has seen and how he integrates these images in such a way so that he is okay (though my hunch he has an incredibly loving family that helps him tremendously). I pray for his safe and permanent return and that we bring them all home safely.

    • He doesn’t talk much about it except to say that he’s grateful that he can use his knowledge and skills to help these brave men and women. I think it helps him tremendously to be able to *do* something tangible in response to the horror. And yes, family is incredibly important. He has a wife and two beautiful little girls whom he adores, and a sister and parents who love him with a vengeance. He’s safely back stateside now and is told there will be no more deployments before he separates–I pray that is true. Thank you for keeping him in your thoughts.

      • I am so glad he’s home and I will keep all good thoughts that he remains stateside until he separates. He has done heroic work for which he will always be held in awe – in my eyes and countless others. It’s time for him to know peace.

  3. Even though I manifested this article. When I read it here, it gives me chills up and down my spine. Right as I type this a huge parade passed my apartment, and was it ever rightous. Every year more and more people recognize, and pay tribute to the ones.

    • I pray for the time when none of our children, spouses, parents are never tested by the cruelty of war, never have to be subjected to the sights of our inhumanity to each other, never lose their lives or spirit before their lives truly have a chance to begin. I salute our heroes and there are no adequate memorials to truly do them justice… Thank you for writing – I share your chills and humbling awe.
