Bloggers Challenge - A Memorial Day Tribute



Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! With it being Memorial Day weekend, this weeks challenge is Patriotic. What better weekend to honor those who have served our country!

In time of War,
they heeded the call
They took up arms
"Freedom For All"
They went to serve
in a far away land
In battles they fought,
they took a stand

In honor of Country, their duty they performed
For those who died, our Country sadly mourned
There were many who fell and gave their lives
Leaving behind children, mothers, fathers and wives

They fought the fight to "Let Freedom Ring"
In honor of that, their praises we sing
To those who died, we salute you all
And give our thanks for heeding the call

by Donna Dryer


I just LOVE these images from the Artistic Outpost She-roes plate that honor the women who serve in the Military. The image is stamped in Black on Watercolor paper, to add a bit of color, I used the Watercolor Distress Technique, on both the focal image and the sentiment.
