A great 'Doodle'

Doodle 4 Google: A warm winning entry is timely for Memorial Day
Each year, Google turns its logo over to school-age kids with its annual Doodle 4 Google, and the timing couldn't be better for today's winner, Sabrina Brady from Sparta High School in Wisconsin.

Sabrina's winner fits nicely with Memorial Day, which is Monday. Google doesn't include any caption from Sabrina, but the image tells its own, warm story.

One of the o's in Google is a yellow sun, shining above a young girl, seen in black and white except for the red, white and blue of the U.S. flag in her hand.

In four images, the girl runs, then slows down as she stares at a soldier, also in black and white and who stares back at her. In the final image, the kneeling sold[i]er embraces the girl, presumably his daughter, and they are in color and reunited.
I think it was an excellent choice. :)
