This Monday is Memorial Day here in the States, and so I am posting my walk with Jo a bit early.
For this week’s walk with Jo – I take you on one of my very favorite drives near my neighborhood – a narrow little road with trees that change with the 4 seasons.
I also have some rain video footage with a song called Brand New Day by Forty Foot Echo. And to add to the feel of Memorial Day, I added a few photos from the Naval Aviation Monument, which sits right near the Atlantic Ocean in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Now I know everyone has “different” political views, but it looks like the President of the United States, Barack Obama, decided to join in on Restless Jo’s walk this week as well!
Here is the youtube video showing Obama (likely wearing some high-tech bullet proof undergarments) – along with his staff – enjoying a little ol’ spring stroll this week!
I think Obama’s walk is extra cool – because it whispers of the freedom we have in this country – and even though the President has to be careful as to ‘when and where’ he takes a stroll, well this joyous little walk = with handshakes and smiles = it screams volumes about the freedom we have because of those who have “given the ultimate sacrifice” – who are also the ones we honor and remember on Memorial Day!
Hope you too – can get out for a spring stroll!
And for those who want to peek at other Memorial Day posts – Koji’s very detailed post
