Today was the dedication of the Colorado Freedom Memorial, which honors Colorado's veterans killed in the line of duty. My chorus, Sound of the Rockies, was invited to sing during the ceremony. All I had was my iPhone, but my placement on the risers next to the walkway put me in a position to get this shot of CFM President Rick Crandall and Medal of Honor recipient and W.W.II. veteran George T. Sakato, preparing to place flowers in front of the panels holding the names of all the Colorado troops who fell in W.W.II. Mr. Sakato is 92 years old.
It was an extraordinarily moving ceremony and a great honor to participate in a small way. And it was tough to sing under those conditions: emotions were running high, and I spent much of the afternoon near tears.
