Memorial Day... a thought

Something I came across and taped near my computer a few years ago...  (today seems an appropriate day to post it)

Dear Lord, Lest I continue 
My complacent way,
help me to remember,
Someone died for me today.
As long as there be war,
I then must 
ask and answer
Am I worth dying for?

(Poet  W. H. Auden)


  1. An excellent post for the day. Thank-you. I pray for a day when there is not war.

  2. Oh my. This struck me with a gasp and a wish that I can be worth it. Thank you, dear Rian.

  3. We all should have that near our computer.


Thanks for reading and commenting! It makes my day...
