Memorial 2012: Right to Life

Death is a fact of life and it comes to everyone. War brings death but it is not inevitable. Today's remembrance is for the fallen.

While there have been such things as a righteous war of self-defense there is no such thing as a good war.

There can be on the other hand a peaceful death and it is the best anyone can hope for. It's been said that fear of death is tantamount to fear of living and living necessitates being surrounded by loving friends and relatives. The sadness of those left behind has no equal and it forever changes their lives. A creative life full of dear people enables final peace for the departed and in some way eventually for the intimates within that life. Grieving is that process that helps the living to go on after the departure of a loved one even without any revelation as to the meaning of life. It is part of embracing what is.

Death by war necessitates fear and turmoil. Support of the soldiers means that we want them to come home to their loving friends and relatives. We want their good intentions to protect them. We hope that there will never again be unknown soldiers and that the final peace will be as such for everyone.
