Culture War Memorial

This Memorial Day in the US brought memories of 1989, when I first viewed the Names Project quilt in Washington, DC. I was not thinking at that time of the big picture—that 636,000 Americans have given their lives in the American Culture War. I did not fully appreciate that a US president could be an accessory to ignoring the plight of the dying. All I thought about on that solemn day were the front lines of this war—the torn faces of survivors, and the faces of brave friends lost. Not all warriors wear uniforms. Not all our troops fight on foreign soil.

You are not forgotten, my brothers and sisters. Your sacrifice will be forever kindled in our hearts.

As always, I welcome all comments.
