Pink Floyd - The Hero's Return
___________________________________________
Jesus Jesus what's it all about
Trying to clout these little ingrates into shape
When I was their age all the lights went out
There was no time to whine and mope about

And even now part of me flies over
Dresden at angels one five
Though they'll never fathom it behind my
Sarcasm desperate memories lie

Sweetheart sweetheart are you fast asleep, good
'cos that's the only time that I can really speak to you
And there is something that I've locked away
A memory that is too painful
To withstand the light of day

When we came back from the war
The banners and flags hung on everyone's door
We danced and we sang in the street and
The church bells rang

But burning in my heart
The memory smoulders on
Of the gunners dying words on the intercom

Memorial Day is a National Holiday in the USA to commemorate those soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, fighting for their homeland during wars. Some essential (WWII) some not necessary (Iraq). So I honor those brave men and women for their righteousness to do their duty and serve when the country called on them to do so regardless of their political views.

Yes what can I say...  

Just fuck war, I'm empty and yes of course we've to remember 
all, which were fighting. But still I just can't get used to it, we live 
in 2017 and nothing has changed and never will.  Planet earth is so 
beautiful, but mankind is so destructive... So nothing more to say just sad...

It's a beautiful tribute. The image made me think about the solidity of some institutions ... the value of the motherland may be different for each person at different times. Clap
