Scarlett Lewis, Jesse's mother, says she was not surprised to learn that her son's last act was to save his classmates. What an incredibly inspiring woman. Her words: "With Jesse, I have absolutely no regrets. I loved him to pieces, he knew it, and I knew he loved me to pieces. That is a blessing. Jesse was a gift." And she created the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation ♥

They always get a picture of the girlfriend or wife of the soldier, instead of a family member. I love this picture. It shows how much a father is proud of his son and it truly melts my heart. <3
These "coming home" or "going" war photos tear at my heart. A father so full of emotion as Dad knows just how his son feels as Dad was probably a Viet Nam military man himself. :-)
These coming home from the war photos tear at my heart. To all of our military, past, present and future, we thank you so much for your service. This photo is so poignant because it reminds me of a father greeting his son knowing full well what he has been through because he also went to war, most likely in Vietnam. -kjk

Pictures on here always show soldiers and their girlfriends but this is the first time I’ve seen a father and son, and it’s such an amazing picture. http://loveisgrownhere.tumblr.com/post/84166699849/pictures-on-here-always-show-soldiers-and-their

The WWII Fallen at Normandy. In Sept 2013, two British artists, with the help of citizens from Arromanches, France drew the silhouettes of 9,000 fallen soldiers in the sand on the beach at Normandy. It took 200 volunteers and two years of planning. The event marked the International Day of Peace and the ghostly outlines remained on the sand until washed away by the tide. Hero. Heroes.
Beautiful tribute in Normandy, France.

Faith In Humanity Restored/God Bless our fallen soldiers & these wonderful people who helped in honoring these soldiers♥
A Heartbreaking Tribute. Nine thousand silhouettes were hand drawn in the sand on the Normandy beach to commemorate the soldiers and civilians who died on June 6,1944.
Beautiful tribute to the 'fallen'. My grandfather was in the second wave of US troops to storm the beaches at Normandy (and survived). One of his comments about movies such as Saving Private Ryan is that there were too many bullets in the air and not enough bodies on the ground. It's haunting to think about.
Beautiful tribute. Being on Normandy Beach was a surreal moment in my life that I will never forget.

Native Americans called them TWO SPIRIT --Christian leaders, stand on our soil and claim 'gay marriage' has never occurred here. Over 130 tribes in every region of North America performed millions of same sex marriages for hundreds of years. Their statements are both hateful and ignorant. Your 'homosexual' was our "Two Spirit" people... and we considered them sacred.

A friend recently said to me that every now and again the specter of my catholic upbringing steals a quick look to see if anyone is watching and when the time is right, jumps boldly into one my photos. Well, I’m not so sure I can agree with that wholeheartedly. Maybe it’s the Irish in me that that is too stubborn to accept that as truth or perhaps my Latin half that still suffers from the guilt of bailing from the church when I found out that God had a 9 to 5 like everyone else. But one thing that did stick with me from all those years back was an image of a guardian angel hovering over a couple of kids as they crossed an old rickety bridge. So growing up around a lot of bridges I put a fair amount of stock into the role of angels in general. I figured they pretty much had it going on. Needless to say I must have packed that belief away into the little daypack we carry into adulthood for when I saw the above image last weekend out of the blue another childhood truth was devastated and left me asking what in the world could possibly cause an angel to cry. Giving it some thought I can only imagine that perhaps she may have lost her mortal charge in some ploy gone terribly wrong. Or perhaps she was a moment too late to sacrifice herself for the life she was guarding but whatever the case angels answer to no one. So maybe that makes it all the more difficult to lose status quo as guardian… No one to answer to… No one to say it’s ok.
It's the wedding photo she wishes she never had to take. The youngest daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary principal Dawn Hochsprung visited her mom’s grave on her wedding day — and the moment was captured in a hauntingly beautiful photo. The powerful image shows Erica Lafferty dressed in her wedding gown as she kisses her mother's gravestone.
