A Moment to Remember Our Fallen #MemorialDay #NeverForget

The Ascending Butterfly Editorial Team wanted to remind everyone to take a moment to remember our fallen. I do pray for a day when this planet knows true 'Peace' but in the interim it is important to recognize the countless men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our country, for our freedom.

I was inspired by re-reading the story of the Red Poppies, and the poem written by Moina Michael:

"We cherish too,
the Poppy red
That grows in fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies."

It was her idea to wear red poppies on Memorial Day in honor of those who died serving the nation during war. She sold poppies to her friends and co-workers and the money was used to benefit servicemen in need. (By the way, Arizona Poppies are great for attracting butterflies!)

Find a way to be of service today. Moina found a creative way to help our servicemen, certainly we can too!

How are you remembering our fallen today butterflies?
