Memorial Day: Meditating on the Cost of War


This is just a short post to remind you that today isn’t just an extra day off to relax, picnic, and barbecue; it’s a day for thinking about and remembering how real people (not abstract monuments) have spent themselves in our nation’s wars. The point of today is not to glorify war, but to become more mindful us of its costs–lives cut short, families devastated, and in some cases whole generations disrupted.

I’m taking some time today to meditate on the sorrow and the sacrifice, to think about members of my community who have died in recent wars, and to hope for an end to our current conflicts.

Nothing is more frugal (and utopian) than peace.
