A Sagittarian Seeker

May 26, 2019, Phoenix- With tomorrow being rather a full day of honouring the departed, back in Prescott, I made this afternoon a time to place flowers and spend some time at Penny’s grave site.  Although I feel her presence constantly, and don’t crowd her spirit life with constant thoughts of what might have been, […]

There will be parades. There will be cookouts. There will be pool parties. There will be tears. It’s Memorial Day, the unofficial kickoff to summer across this vast and amazing nation. Originally known as Decoration Day — the day when the graves of Civil War dead were decorated with flowers, wreaths and flags — the state of New York made Memorial Day a legal holiday in 1873 and many other states quickly followed suit. After World War I, Memorial Day was cemented in America’s psyche as a day to honor those who had died in U.S. wars. There are 136 national cemeteries in 40 states in places like Fort Smith, Ark.; Laurel, Mont.; Milwaukee; Togus, Maine; and Bourne. Today, every one of them, as well as at 33 soldiers’ lots and monument sites, will feature striking row upon row upon row of American flags on the gravesites of our fallen. These are sacred places and we encourage you to respectfully visit one of them. Walk quietly through and read the names of those who spent their last breaths defending this country at Antietam, Gettysburg, Belleau Wood, Pearl Harbor, Normandy, the Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sanh and countless other places far from home. Do not stare at the ones left behind, sitting on a blanket with flowers and personal items, sharing moments with people they miss so much, weeping. Do not stare, but grieve for them and grieve with them, from a distance. Do appreciate the sacrifice those souls gave so that you can end the day back at your cookout, with your family intact, safe because of the price paid by men and women you never knew. Those heroes would love to join you but they cannot. So at the very least, set an alarm on your smartphones for 3 p.m. That’s to mark The National Moment of Remembrance Act, a little-known observance in place since 2000 that declares that at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day,  Americans take a moment of silence in an act of symbolic unity, to honor the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace. As at Christmas, remember the “reason for the season.”

The home raised rose, did not lead how many days, when the dead of night, heard the voice that the flower falls. At first it was a tentative crack, like a drop of rain on the table. Then, in a hail of “pa” sound, numerous shot butterflies have fallen from the height. The night was […]
