One Day Blog Silence

28 Of Your Sparks

  1. very good bond

  2. I don't know. I think this day will vanish, along with Columbine and be something people refer to without any real significance. By becoming a media circus, politicized by the left and the right, it is simply thirty two people who came together at the wrong place and time as tragedy stalked and gathered them up.

  3. Bond Says:
  4. SARGE: Spreading the word

    STEWART: Thanks for the participation. I hope this day does not go away...the media circus is disgusting...and I even watched them talking about it the other night and kept yelling at the TV "THEN LEAVE THEM ALONE"

  5. Dana Says:
  6. Thanks Vinny. The other day I posted the picture of one of the victims who gave his life to save his students. As one of the victim's family members said, "Remember them, not the man who killed them."

  7. Piacere Says:
  8. Thank you for posting this, V...

    "Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly."


  9. Travis Says:
  10. I have elected to post my normal Manic Monday. I've chosen to honor the day by continuing with my normal routine.

    I think I've found the right poem. I don't remember if I've posted it before, but it seemed appropriate.

  11. Bond Says:
  12. DANA: I will never put the name of the person who caused a tragedy up... why give them the satisfaction

    PIA: I love the quote and agree wholeheartedly

    TRAVIS: My friend... remember it is not this Monday, but next...

  13. busy91 Says:

  16. Tisha! Says:

  20. Matt-Man Says:
  21. Good Pics V. I was just there and saw all of those sites. The Korean War tribute that you have pictured was amazingly lame. Everything else was very good. Cheers!!

  22. SGT DUB Says:
  23. With these pictures, words are not needed.

  24. Bond Says:
  25. SONGBIRD: As do we all

    TISHA: Belle, thank you and to you also

    JULIE: You make me blush

    MATT-MAN: Be careful, that was dad's War....but ty

    SG DUB: Your words mean a lot...thank you

  26. Christine Says:
  27. Thank you for this wonderful tribute to all the senseless losses of life. When we saw the Vietnam Memorial, it brought me too tears, how the names just went on forever.
    Saying a silent prayer for all.

  28. Angell Says:
  29. Wonderful Bond.

    Thank you.

  30. so nice i had to come back for a second bite of the apple, yours just may be the best post of the day.

  31. Bond Says:
  32. CHRISTINE: Appreciate your kind words, and the prayers to all.

    ANGELL: You are welcome

  33. My comment below was intended for this post, the very best I have seen today, thanks bond

  34. Matt-Man Says:
  35. Yo Bond...I was just pointing out that more could have done. If you saw the Korean Memorial in person, you would say to yourself, "WTF"? Cheers...

  36. Bond Says:
  37. SARGE: Thank you Sir, coming from you, it means a lot.

    MATT-MAN: sheesh I was teasing you dude.... all hung up being the star of a Bud Light commercial has weakened your "tease-factor"

  38. Morgen Says:
  39. .
    sometimes silence speaks volumes
    sometimes we have to shout

  40. Travis Says:
  41. The images are profound. Well done Sir.

  42. Linda Says:
  43. I have to disagree with Matt on the Korean War Monument. I saw it at night and it was very impressive and eerie at the same time. There is nothing lame about it at all when viewed properly. Of course we are all entitled to our own thoughts and opinions.

    A very nice tribute and post; glad I stopped by.

  44. Dixiechick Says:
  45. .....

  46. wow, amazing post bond. i am truly impressed! and sorry to be so late, sigh. i get so easily sidetracked when someone has chocolate in their comments box you know, then i nap, and wander around. i need to "focus", right? anyway, wonderful post....

    smiles, bee

  47. Bond Says:
  48. MORGEN: My friend...I totally understand your feelings..and the picture on your blog is for a cause I shout about often. This one time, I wanted to honor those with silence.

    TRAVIS: Thank you...funny but it took me almost as long as if I had written a Monday Matinee...looking for the perfect images.

    LINDA: It took them way too long to have a memorial for those who fought in the "Forgotten War" It looks impressive and I look forward to seeing it someday in person.
    Thanks for coming by THE COUCH, please stop by anytime.

    Dixie: Kisses and hugs Sugarbaby

    BEE: TYVM for the compliment. Never late...THE COUCH is open 24/7.

  49. This was very special. Thanks for sharing these photos here.
