National cemetery's centuries-old 'Arlington Oak' felled by Irene - CNN.com: "The "Arlington Oak" "
'via Blog this' The "Arlington Oak"
Stories like this capture my imagination to a level so high it can actually bring tears to my eyes. If you read the article you might get an idea of what I'm talking about. The many souls that have visited that cemetery is large but the feeling of actually being there is remarkable. The many brave soldiers that have died for the very freedoms we enjoy today as well as tomorrow can not be ignored. Now having an icon like the "Arlington Oak" gone knowing that it stood before many families grieving for their loved ones will now have many grieving from its' departure. Most of you reading this won't give this a second thought but for those who know and respect this country's history please take a moment in remembrance.
