A Day of Rememberance

I stumbled upon Arlington Miami in front of the Bayfront Amphitheater this past Sunday afternoon on my way to Bayside Marketplace from the College/Bayside station of the Metromover.

It made me stop.

In a city sorely lacking in art in public places (unless you count the roosters on Calle Ocho), I found Arlington Miami to be quite refreshing. It made me uncomfortable, piqued my curiosity, provoked thought and put things in perspective all in a span of 20 seconds. Best of all, it was there for all to see. For free.

My salute to all the soldiers that have carried and continue to carry the weight of the stars and stripes on their broad shoulders. Thank you.

My condolences to the families dealing with the loss of a fallen hero.

    You have no responses… well, maybe others are in that rememberance stage or forgot what really Memorial, Veterans and other National related holidays really mean.

    I had the privilege of visiting Arlington Cementary – it was an experience that still to this date when I talk about it brings tears to my eyes. Made me really realize and appreciate all the men and women that go to war for us. No matter your political beliefs, they are out there and they are normal human beings like you and I.

    So, I salute all the men and women who represent me as the Cuban-American I am today.

    Thanks for sharing Adrian and God Bless America.
