Remember the dead

There is not much to say beyond that. As Memorial Day approaches, one must remember.

There are the four dead from the 1st Marine Logistics Group, for instance.

There are the Iraqis killed by bombs, by torture, by who knows what other means.

And war is far from the only cause. Who knows how many are dead now in Myanmar. Who knows how many have died in China. Tragedies like them beggar the imagination, and they will continue for that, sadly, is a risk of life — a banal sentiment on my part but one that acknowledges fragility and the lack of guarantees.

Thus, simply, remember, and embrace life, and work to better oneself and one’s world. That is always the goal.
