The View from South of the Potomac River: Thoughtful Thursday

Thoughtful Thursday

I had previously written about an EMT of the Alexandria Fire Department that died last week in the line of duty, Tribute to Fallen EMT at Fire Station 206 in Alexandria.   His memorial service starts in about 15 minutes and a huge turnout is expected.  We live just around from Station 206 where Joshua was stationed and I took a short walk to do some thinking at lunch.   

Those attending the service and coming from I-395 onto Seminary Road Eastbound will be greeted by this sight.

That flag hanging from the tower trucks in a light rain, reminds me that we are incredibly fortunate in this country for all the opportunity that we have and of the sacrifices made by a countless number of our civil servants & military.

AJ - Brings a lump in the throat just at the sight. Indeed a thoughtful Thursday!

John - I have to admit, I was walking to get my caffeine allotment for the day and was inspired by the sight.  I would be lying if I said that I was the only one standing in the middle of the road, waiting for the wind to down so that we could capture the flag entirely...  cars were pulled over to the side and it was the greatest usage of camera phones that I have ever experienced so far.
