one meaning of the peony is compassion.
thank you to all the men & women who serve our country through military service past, present and future. recently, we saw the hbo mini-series the pacific about the ww2 battles along the asian pacific. the series was very graphic, but gave you a thorough sense about how the soldiers changed from innocent young men to shattered young men if they were lucky to survive. we don't know anyone who saw action there, but have a new understanding about what they all endured. we hope someday the military will only be used for peacekeeping or to respond to a natural disaster like they did in haiti. today, we'll appreciate our freedom a little bit more.
xo, cindy & scott
