Thinking About Memorial Day and Robert Bly
Today is Memorial Day. I was thinking about war, and the people who go through it.
Though it’s not specifically focused on America, I find myself thinking a lot about Robert Bly’s poem the Russian.
Memorial Day makes me think of the United States, and the people who willingly risk their lives for the freedoms I enjoy, day to day. But Memorial Day also makes me think of other countries, of all the varied people across the world who risk their lives for their homes.
Read Robert Bly’s The Russian. It’s a good poem.
