This speaks out. Thanks for reminding us.

I need to re-visit India Gate which was built in memory of those who laid down their lives for India.

Isn't this the wall? I remember how it startled me. And the little slips of paper like at the wailing wall. Different kinds of prayers? The row after row after row at the graveyard in Kentucky- anonymous men of the civil war. Brother against brother. The men and women now who've come home in coffins that no one was allowed to photograph. Maybe the moment is simple and the history anything but? I don't know. Don't mean to spam, but your simple post has jarred something loose, dear remiman.

When I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in DC I was shocked at how it managed to carve out a slice of quiet in the midst of the bustle. Simple lines, straightforward list of names, a largely unadorned space, all add up to a simple (in the best sense) honor.

Having had so many relatives involved in the wars over the past hundred years or so- dad, brother, uncles, great grandad... the simplest tribute is to never forget... thanks, Rel...

May they rest in peace.

Their sacrifices will always be remembered through the writing of people like you, Rel.

Thank you, Rel, for your warm and kind words to me recently. I think we recognise in each other a genuine and like-minded person. It's good to have a friend like you :)

Indeed simple---beautiful, eloquent simplicity---and yet complex. A poignant and exceedingly appropriate reminder. Thanks, Rel.

Thank you to all service men and women over the years. Without you, we would not have our current freedoms.

I am so glad that I just popped into your blog and saw this. I was disheartened after watching morning TV while working out this morning and seeing nothing but talk of Memorial Day as kick off to swimsuit season. Thanks for showing me the true focus.
