{Veterans Day}

When Woodrow Wilson signed the Armistice saying World War I
was over, he declared that day -- now known as Veterans Day --
a national holiday honoring military veterans.

I put together a mosaic in honor of what that means.
What they've fought for.
What they've protected.
What they've sacrificed.

Today, I'm feeling humbled and thankful.
What's on your mind this Veterans Day?

Glad you figured out how to do the mosaic....any special site you used??

Yeah, I got really excited when I went to do it and it worked the other day. (You're sweet to remember I was having that problem, Kristi.) I just put my pictures on flickr and did the mosaic on this site: http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/mosaic.php. That's where I've done it in the past, but for some reason, the mosaic post hadn't been cooperating. I'm still not sure if it had been user error or the site. :)
