I saw this on the book of face yesterday, posted on my great friend Megan’s wall. Very simple, poignant yet made me pause for thought.
Lest I continue
My complacent way,
Help me to remember that somewhere,
Somehow out there
A man died for me today.
As long as there be war,
I then must
Ask and answer
Am I worth dying for?
-Eleanor Roosevelt “Wartime Prayer”
The hardest part about today was listening to N’s voice crack as he described his flight school study partner and friend, NM. I don’t get why things happen the way they do – but so much loss, tragedy and grief is beyond understanding. War is horrible – And grief is overwhelming.
That’s all I have to say today.
