Memorial Day

National cemetary at San Francisco's Presidio, with Bay fog in the background.

I wish I could say there had been a war in my lifetime in which the death of U.S. soldiers seemed worth the sacrifice -- but there hasn't been such a thing.

There are countries where no one living has had to think about that question -- though not many. They are to be envied and, if possible, emulated.

That is a beautiful photo of a very sad memorial. Young men and women die for old men's greed.
