Hail to the honored dead

by beanalreasa

Today is Memorial Day in the United States.

For folks of all faiths who have fallen in the service of our country, hail to the honored dead.

May they be fondly remembered and their service honored, even if the reasons and conflicts were wrongheaded.

To serve is honorable, even if the leaders and wars are not.

May they be in our flowing cups freshly remembered.

In 2013, the Mjolnir symbol was added to the Arlington National Cemetery database for use on headstones
