Memorial Walk ~ Just for Fun Week 5

Kim Johnson has started a new theme for the next two weeks of her challenge. Click the link for details Just for Fun Week 5 & 6.

The theme is all about Transportation. I had a tough time with this one but here goes my first photo.

This photo was taken at a suicide awareness memorial walk. I walked in memory of my precious son. Many donations were received for the local suicide awareness and outreach group. There were many that turned out for the walk, unfortunately. You might be surprised at how many parents out there have lost children, siblings, and/or parents, to suicide. Nobody is immune. Never make the mistake of saying “my child would never do that”. It happens way too often. And it leaves the parent (or family member) with a lifetime nightmare to deal with. You never get over it. You just learn how to get through and start your new normal.

A favorite quote comes to mind…   Those we love and lose are not where they once were. They are now wherever we are.

What do you think?

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
