Let Us Praise the Dead

Now let us praise the dead and those who have died in battle. It does not matter a rattle whether their cause was just or base or their motive pure or self serving; the dead have died for us, and so we think, and so we must think,  and for them, those bones that no longer laugh or feel, now lie still in pristine cemeteries where the rows that mark them are spotless white, well ordered, and quite unlike the chaos and disorder in which those soldiers met their deaths.
