The last Monday in the month of may will always be calendered, until war is celebrated as victory.
Memorial day, a day for what? a celebration, a sadness, feasting or fasting?
I would consider this day for introspection, why do we need to have this memorial day, for what acts of bravery or compassion our soldiers have offered to fellow soldiers or to the civilians of the land, they had fought in.
Medals are offered to silence the acts of brutality, and kill the compassionate feelings that surface in a soldier.
I who am against war, feel the soldiers are exploited, and freedom always is a distant horizon for them and for the humans of earth.
In Memory of those who have fought to be remembered.
