I love this one Lin. Such glorious colors and such a fitting tribute. I especially like the sun spots on the poppies and the way you've worked the blue and green into the foliage. I hope lots of veterans see this and also families of those serving. Wouldn't it be great if those actually serving right now could see it too. When I see a service person I always try to put my hand over my heart and nod my thanks. What they are asked to do is beyond reason to me but then I've always been a Peacenik!

Hugs and love and thank you for this tribute to those who so richly deserve it.

And here is an excellent speech on patriotism by Dr. Ron Paul -- you can listen to it or read it:
