The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.” (J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King)

On Memorial Day in the United States of America, we remember, honor and pray for those men and women of the armed forces who died defending our nation. – The Editors
