This photograph of a soldier holding a wounded soldier was sculptured totally from sand on a beach in California. My friend took me to a wonderful memorial when I visited her some years back. I canít remember the particulars but it touched me deeply and I continue to admire the care and talent each artist had when forming his work of appreciation.
ďAs we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.Ē ~John F Kennedy
