The last notes

0525_jprphotos_2325

Taps is a piece of music that brings a lot to mind.  It is peaceful and yet dynamic.  It gives us a few moments to think about what we are doing when we hear it.  It does not let our mind wonder as the notes play across the field. 

We jump when the guns or cannon goes off.  It is our job to remember our veterans, to lengthen as long as possible their time of death to the time those of us who live actually forget who they are.
