In this time of terrible cognitive dissonance, we can best honor soldiers and veterans by caring for their medical and occupational needs after they serve, because the dead need only love. As a person deeply opposed to war, I am also opposed to the mistreatment of people who trust us not to expend life and limb foolishly. There is everything to say now and no way to say it anymore.
This song still brings tears to my eyes. For a youthful, stylized version of what we had and lost, have a look at this.
Peace be with you this day, whoever you are.
