Rosemary for Remembrance

Into tonight's fire, in the backyard, rosemary. It is dried and fragrant, harvested from last year's garden.  As the rosemary burns, we will remember and honor those who have gone before. The ones who gave their lives in all the wars, those wars that have come and gone and still rage today. Home of the free, because of the brave.  Memorial Day.

There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray you, love,
remember........
-William Shakespeare (Hamlet, Act 4, Scene 5)
