The Other Memorial Day

DSC_0014.JPGYesterday, I was on my way to visit the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial, when I spotted an abandoned shopping cart leaning on a tree in downtown Sacramento.  This city is challenged by the homeless who scar the landscape with needles, garbage,  shopping carts and their despair. Some want and need help, but too many are beyond an easy fix of food and shelter. Their memorial day is every day.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
