A young mans bike

He is long forgotten now, those who knew him are likely all dead. His memeory lives on though and his story is passed down from generation to generation.

In Arlington National Cemetery we have the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, but in all honesty, we today have millions of unknown soldiers, men and women who gave their lives for our country. Most graves have a name, but how many can put a face with that name? With each passing year fewer people remain who knew them. Their wives, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers pass on. Children, if they have any grow old and die, and too soon, even with a name, they are a soldier known but to GOD.
Maybe this is more suited for Memorial Day, or Veterans Day, but to me, there is no day that is not appropriate to honor a soldier.
