Gold Star Mothers

gold star yonkersSeveral years ago, Linda and I happened upon a Gold Star Mothers Memorial in Yonkers, NY, a sad and sacred landmark. I thought about it while reading Ghazala Khan’s powerful op-ed in the Washington Post yesterday. There are also Gold Star Mother Memorials in Angleton, TX; Waterbury, CT; Carmel, NY; Eastchester, NY; Manchester, NH. The top photo is Yonkers, the bottom Gold Star East cropis Eastchester.
