Memorial Day 2017

Someone asked me how was my Memorial Day weekend was today. To be honest, Sunday made the weekend for me. Seeing a young 12 year old so engaged in wanting to clean and reset a Civil War soldier headstone. There was no short cuts, she wanted to be part of digging it out, cleaning it, putting the dirt back in, making sure it was straight and put the flag holder back. On top of that she asked questions about the stone, the procedure, and the veteran himself. It was truly great to watch it all unfold. A volunteer from Preserving Newbury, Tracey who did an amazing job working with the 12 year old all day. It was truly a blessing to witness. This was a great way to pay respect to this veteran for Memorial Day. 🇺🇸
