What is it that we should remember?
Not a blanket patriotic blurb.
A common humanity. A day of souls.
A day of unselfish acts.
A day to mark our consciences, whether we fight or not.
A day of measuring regret.
It should connect us, this experience of human life.
The severance is what breaks us.
However war comes, it breaks us.


  1. But in remembering we are at least broken together.

  2. So true and so simply yet perfectly put. Thank you Lisa.

  3. A valuable and poignant meditation, Lisa. Thank you.

  4. Thank you all for lovely comments, as ever: I think a toast to peace and mending is in order xx

  5. Wow, this is a lovely post, Lisa.

    Every word - elegant.
