“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.” (J. R. R. Tolkien, Faramir in The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers)
On Memorial Day in the United States of America, we remember, honor and pray for those men and women of the armed forces who died defending our nation. May their sacrifice never be forgotten and may they rest in God’s peace. — The Editors
