dulce et decorum est... patria mori. so they say. and as we celebrate our 6th wartime memorial day, i will take the liberty of travelling through time, so to speak, because blogs let you do that.

i visited the second life vietnam memorial actually in the middle of april. which is why i think the cherry trees are all in bloom.

i have never been to the real memorial. i went to arlington national cemetery, and tried to find it, but got hung up on the WW2 memorial and so got sidetracked and never made it to the smooth black wound in the green park, inscribed with the names of the fallen.

it must suck, maybe be a cold comfort, in heaven, to be part of a war that is now turned into a cliche'd metaphor--such and such war is the next vietnam, etc. and i hope that in real life, the cherry trees' blossoms flutter over the cold stone monument in the spring...........

GI juana wears:

divine right set the black canary
xishi drl hair
sleeps with butterflies set attachments by gauze
crossed out clown skin from carnival of doom
carpe noctem boots by nightshade designs
misa set by sugar
oshun collar midnight by dark eden
dreams by red queen
forbidden 14 by lionskins
