Memorial Day - ares and aphI hadn’t intended to do a Memorial Day post because it didn’t really seem appropriate for this blog. But then it struck me. What could be more appropriate for a priestess of Aphrodite?

There is no greater love than to sacrifice your life for others. Maybe that’s why Ares and Aphrodite are tied so closely together. Because violence in order to protect others is an act of love, and honoring those who make that sacrifice is an acknowledgement of that love.

So today I pay my respects, in the name of Aphrodite, to those who have given the ultimate gift of love. May you find rest, wherever you may be, and may those you leave behind be warmed and comforted by your memory.
