    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     konacraig says the garden of 30,000 flags is located in a large park in central Boston. He describes the area as a beautiful lawn lined with several aged trees. 'It was shocking to see 30,000 flags in one area and then realize that they represent 30,000 people, in just one state, who have given their lives for our country,' he says.

    As I strolled through downtown Boston on Saturday May 26th I came upon a garden of 30,000 flags placed in memory of every fallen Massachusetts service member from the Civil War to present.

    There was a sign which quoted an Army General from the 1800's which said " Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravage of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided republic"

    These words ring tru today as they have through every generation.

    Memorial Day 2012.
