This week Inka of Glamour Granny Travels is hosting Fashion FLash. Thoughout my life I have always looked for interesting strong women for a role models for the changing roles all women face as time passes.. After 60, it was hard to find women who showed me how it was done. When I first clicked on Glamour Granny Travels, I found a soulmate. Here was a beautiful elegant woman who left her career as an attorney to follow her interests as a travel writer and photographer– while still a loving grandmother. It doesnt get better than that.
For most of my young life, Memorial Day was all about great sales and grilled ribs. I was only vaugely aware that it celebrated the men and women of the armed services. But as a young wife, Vietnam brought the real meaning of Memorial Day right to my doorstep. My husband was drafted to serve as a navel doctor. Classmates lost their young husbands and young men came home with physical and mental wounds that remained for a lifetime. Now I am the grandmother of two boys, and I am even more aware of the meaning of Memorial Day. Quite simply I don’t want to these lovely little boys to die on a battlefield. What can be done to protect our new generation of young men?
