For this week’s challenge, I decided to wait until this weekend was over. This being Memorial Day weekend in the United States, it’s often referred as the unofficial start of summer. When I think of summer, I think of this weekend when the masses all across America partake in various outdoor festivities like barbecues, swimming at the beaches and pools, vacationing with family, riding a bike, catching a movie or simply spending time with friends and family.
This weekend also reminds us that the freedoms we now enjoy come at an all too heavy price. This is the weekend where we get to remember and honor the countless soldiers that died defending this country so that we may all enjoy the freedom we often take for granted. When I think of summer, I think of this weekend. What I did was simply go out with the family and strolled the streets of Greenwich Village, mid-town on Broadway and Times Square.
