Among the Graves This Memorial Day

Rate this Entry
The lead editorial from the New York Times today:

"Whatever you make of the wars in which those soldiers fought, whatever you make of war itself, their sacrifices are real and permanent. How death came to them, now or then, is something only they can know. We who have not been called to war, or have been lucky enough not to lose anyone dear, still feel the loss. These are things worth remembering here in the last blush of spring, the first flush of summer."

My own family has had soldiers in it for many generations, who served in many wars on sea and land, at home and abroad.

No generation, no time, no nation, should ever forget the sacrifices that have been made.

    Well said! If only we need not have this day.


    If you don't mind me asking; which war is that?
