National Memorial Arboretum

We spent a cold but sunny Saturday at England’s National Memorial Arboretum with some friends. It’s a place to commemorate those who have fallen for and served their country.IMG_5428IMG_5392IMG_5419The kids’ favorite was this memorial to fallen Navy sailors.IMG_5396Arboretum_CollageWhile I appreciated the statues at the top of the main memorial, particularly the opening in the wall that symbolically looks through the doors of death to eternity. IMG_5432IMG_5436Stay warm, friends! Spring isn’t that far away.
