Christmas At Arlington Cemetary

This is the final part of my email.  Hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have!

You may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. A wonderful guy. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.

What a wonderful thing to do. That picture is lovely but very sad too.

Beautiful. So melancholic in some way and sad, but also tranquil and peaceful.

Please feel free to get a widget of tree, they do some brilliant things with computers don't they!
