“Remembrance and reflection how allied. What thin partitions divides sense from thought.”

– Alexander Pope

 

***  Today is Memorial Day in the United States.  My mother remembers going to the cemetery in Saxonville, Massachusetts as a little girl for Decoration Day, and the Civil War veterans would pay their respects to the widows.  This is a day I choose to remember my friends and shipmates who are no longer with us, and to remember something about each of them and our time together.  I also think of the  Navy Hymn played at the end of so many funerals:

 

Eternal Father, strong to save,

Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep

Its own appointed limits keep;

Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,

For those in peril on the sea!
