A Memorial Day everywhere this year

Monday May 29th, 2017 is a day of remembrance this year that has even more consequence and pathos than normal.

Not only is this Memorial Day in the USA but also people in Europe and especially in England will be remembering the tragic loss of friends and family in the Manchester ISIS atrocity.

Remembering lost soldiers, and hundreds of civilian victims of war and other atrocities

Beyond our borders, at the time of writing this, we’re also mourning the loss of another 16 civilians in Syria.

And probably by the time this post is published, there will be other human atrocities we can write about, and mourn. Not to mention the thousands of refugees drowned in the Mediterranean.

There are no words to express the horrors of war, the bravery and sacrifice of our soldiers, and the atrocities continually being wreaked upon innocent adults and children.

Let’s hope for a better, more humane world. One day.
