For the first Memorial Day in literally ten years we did not have a soccer tournament and was able to do something I have been meaning to do for years – go to the Boston Common to check out the Memorial Day Flag Garden. Each of the 37,000 flags planted at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument represents every brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. The completed garden is a breathtaking tribute to the true meaning of Memorial Day and a powerful message of community support to the families of these fallen heroes that their sacrifices will never be forgotten. It really was a stunning site!
Of course, I took many photos and videos while I was there, and this one touched me especially.
I admit it, I teared up. Look at that beautiful young man. ugh!! My heart goes out to Shayne’s family especially his Mum 🙁 .
I have been a sponsor of the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund but decided I wanted to do more. I am making the photos and video snippets I took on the day available for sale on my website, and will donate all of the proceeds to the MMHF.
If you are looking for some beautiful images of the garden or a background video of American Flags for your Memorial Day, 4th of July or Veteran’s day artwork for social media or your website, then download our videos and images and know that you are making a difference!
