Thought flies free from memory

 

Today, let us remember with humility that we are celebrating the defeat not of a nation, but of the ascendancy of an idea. Let us be shamed that we had to fight this war, that we allowed the rise of an ideology based on hatred, based on the idea that not all humans are equal. Let us be alarmed that we only won a battle, for ideas cannot be defeated, and let us not go down that road again.

Thought flies free from memory

In my nightmares thought flies free from memory, and ugly spectres rise, soaring over the ruin of abandonment. Cultural barbarism released unchecked. On all sides ascendant.
