Flag Garden on Boston Common

For Memorial Day weekend, more than 33,000 flags were planted at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Boston Common. Each flag represents one fallen Massachusetts serviceman or woman, beginning with the Civil War and continuing to the present. 

The Flag Garden is organized annually by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund "for observance and reflection." It's a moving, sobering, almost unfathomable sight: so many lives, so much courage and sacrifice. And grief. See it today if you have a chance:
