Veterans' Day

Remembering our Veterans today and their enormous sacrifice.  
With a red poppy & the beautiful poem by Emily Dickinson, which reminds of their true sacrifice and the delicate balance of 'victory'.  
You are not forgotten.
Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated--dying--
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!
