We remember the loss.
And I can’t help but think
Of the moms
Who’s loss is every day.
I can’t help but think of how different the world would be
If we weren’t dedicating a day for recognizing loss.
But celebrating because we had no reason to acknowledge loss.
That would be the most honorable way
To memorialize those who gave all
In the belief they were dying for peace.
Long before we start saying Rest In Peace
Maybe we should start saying Live In Peace.
Peace is not impossible.
People are impossible.
