Happy Friday, which happens to also be a holiday Friday (in the U.S.)!!!  It's Julie's turn to create a Freestyle Fridays project this week, and pictured to the right is the sneak peek that she sent to me.  To see the whole project and learn about the technique that she used, we'll have to visit her blog.  We should probably leave her a little comment love while we're there.  I hope you have a safe and fun holiday weekend and, as you celebrate the official beginning of Summer, don't forget to observe the real meaning of Memorial Day.

I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers' tears?
How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, freedom isn't free.
- Excerpt from "No, Freedom Isn't Free" by CDR Kelly Strong, USCG (Ret)
