Rememberance

There are lots of Holidays in America but for some reason I find I’m connected to Memorial Day most.  I think that it’s because so many people stood up for what they believed in…freedom.

The Flag Flies

All around this great country the Flag still flies and to many American’s like the Roomie it means much.  The Flag is a salute to those who gave the last full measure of devotion.  We draped their coffins with it, as if to wrap their broken bodies in the arms of all of America.

The Grave of Civil War General George Meade

I’m watching “The Civil War” with the Roomie and I’m learning a lot about the sacrifices that were paid by those who saw too much but had a faith that went undaunted.

Thank you to all those who served and are currently serving.  It is for your sacrifices that I a Troll from Norway enjoy all that America has to offer.

Hi my name is Bjorn Maelstrom. This blog follows my many adventures. I've been to 16 different states since coming to America. After I suffered two fractured arms I've had to slow down a big but my friends Mick, Alistair, Chris, Hazel, Frank and a bunch of others have graciously said they would continue my adventures. Not that I'm going away completely. Sometimes we travel together sometimes separately but no matter where we go it's always a good time.
