On the road:
Blue Hill war memorials

Driving across Maine, it looks as if every town was hit up by an American flag salesman. As you slow to enter the town center, flags wave from every electric pole. Occasionally there is a American Legion post with civil war cannons and more flags.

But what's this across the street?

Oh yes, there's a war or two going on. Citizens of Blue Hill remember the dead -- even the civilians.

When the dead soldier was from Maine, there's an additional flag.

The wars grind on; for what?

The innocent are the ones that suffer the most in a war. It has always been that way, sad to say. I am glad one town recognizes that fact.
