In war there are no unwounded soldiers ... and there is no one who hasn't been to war. Veteran, active service-person, or the person in the cubby next to you at the office, everyone you meet has fought, or is fighting a hard battle. "Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something."
We celebrate the personal courage and committment of those who served, who gave their lives that others might live, and for those left behind, who grieve.
There is no song or music more consonant with grief than Dido's Lament, from Henry Purcell's opera, Dido and Aeneas. Click HERE to see video of Jessye Norman singing Dido's Lament.
For the parents who lost children, and the children who lost parents, those who lost sweethearts and spouses, and those who lost their moorings, and the many Vietnam veterans who live in homeless shelters, suffering still ...
