I was amazed at the number of people there. I expected perhaps a dozen or two, but there were many more people than that.
Cars were parked up and down both sides of two long driveways that lead to the field of white crosses.
On this very cold fall day we all paid tribute to our fallen heroes with prayers, speeches, songs and salutes, including this nine second video of the three volleys of rifle shots fired in honor of the deceased veterans .

As they do most years, my mom and dad carried the wreath for the Korean soldiers.
Last week I bought a new necklace on a black rope. I loved the bronze/black color.
I am planning to stay home this weekend and get some much needed cleaning done. I may even bring up a Christmas tree and began to play around with this year's color scheme of gold/bronze/green. I know it's too early, but after this weekend, my weekends are all tied up until mid December. So it's now or 4 weeks from now. My feeling is if you don't do it until two weeks before, why bother? LOL. It's too much work for just two weeks. I promise I won't light it up until after Thanksgiving.
