Memorial DayPosted by Dorothy on 5/29/04 at 11:10 (151540)
I hope you all have a nice weekend and a reflective one. This Memorial Day holiday has its origins in what is an important collective ritual: remembering those we have lost and reflecting on the meaning of their lives and their deaths. I hope that we do reflect and that we think about the preciousness of being alive on the planet - and that we all find some peace - whether it's peace in our bodies, in our towns, in the world. We all need healing and health, whether it's our physical beings, our spiritual selves, or our social/political aspects.
There must be answers and repairs, don't you think? To our hurting feet, our other body parts,our heavy hearts, our broken communities, our human woes. I'm a bit depressed - and probably a bit depressing. Sorry.
Do have lovely and peaceful weekends, all of you, all over the planet.
