ANZAC day in Australia... today we're in Hiroshima reflecting on a different war. This building is the A-bomb dome and somehow parts of this building were left standing after the implosion. This building and the park it's in are here as a reminder not only to all those affected directly and indirectly, but also to advocate world peace..... #horishima#peacepark#traveljapan#peace#adventures#japan
Wherever you are at this very moment while reading this post take a minute to pause and reflect on your life. We never now what day is our last, and after attending this beautiful memorial service today of Gunner Whilhite (20 years old) the Holy Ghost spoke to my soul, heart, and mind that this life is but a small moment in the eternities and should be lived to the fullest! Be kind, be loving, be compassionate, be forgiving, be of service, and most of all be of good cheer! I am grateful to have known Gunner for even just these short few years and my heart is full. If I have ever offended anyone I am sorry, and I hope you can forgive me. I love my Savior and I love my Father in Heaven! I know they live and they love me and all of you! "Until we meet again!" ✌🏻❤️ #rip#godisgood#itsnevertoolate#peace#kindness#joy#charity#love#compassion#lds#god#recovery
A lovely military man selling poppies stopped me today and asked if he could reposition mine - while doing so he told me that women should wear their poppy on their right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn't have their loved ones return home, and the green leaf represents the grass and crops growing and future prosperity after the war destroyed so much. The leaf should be positioned at 11 o'clock to represent the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the time that World War One formally ended. He was worried that younger generations wouldn't understand this and his generation wouldn't be around for much longer to teach them.
