Another Memorial Day is almost past. I hope, in honoring those who have died in service to our nation, that perhaps some people remember that there was a time when the idea of going to war was a bad thing. Our government, our industry and our leaders often find reasons why our soldiers should die. I hope that one day we will discover the reason they should live.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.View all of Dan Granot's posts.
