Arlington National Cemetery - today on Internet Minute
"I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of Freedom." Those words greet you when you arrive at the Arlington National Cemetery web site. They were written more than 135 years ago by Abraham Lincoln, and are the inspiration for every letter written to every member of the military who died in battle, now buried under one of those seemingly endless lines of white stone.
Not all of those buried at Arlington are war dead, but all are veterans of military service. The web site is a good remembrance. It best value however, may be to urge you to physically visit it some day in person. For those of us who have, it is a moving, indelible experience.
