The Memorial Prayer
Color of the day: Green
Incense of the day: Chrysanthemum
Today we honor war veterans. Find an object symbolic of some-one you wish to remember, and place it on your altar as an offering of thanks for those who have fought for freedom. Spend a few minutes today reading about history, watch a documentary program, or visit a memorial site and speak these words, either out loud or to yourself:
Today we honor those who have fought and those who have fallen.
Life holds many battles.
Lend us their strength,
grant us their courage.
I like to do this because of everyone I've known who has faught in wars, died in wars, and survived wars.
