Considering most epitaphs highlight attributes of the deceased to honor their life the following epitaph made me stop and pause:
"When you go home
Tell them of us
For your tomorrow
We gave our today"
I stood thinking about the message for a long time until I realized the context of the word "home" can radically change the meaning of the message. If you consider home as the place where you'll spend eternity then this message makes absolutely no sense. On the other hand if you consider home as the place where you lay your head to sleep or where your heart is then this message makes perfect sense.
The inscription is on a Westwood Cemetery headstone and was probably taken from the cemetery in Kohima. Next time I walk by I'll have to look at the dates.
I feel Your presence Lord
Like the daylight upon me
I give You my best praise
In the safety of this place
My hands are lifted high
I sing of love so deep and wide
I search for timeless truth
With words say I love You
Who will answer to the cries
Of the oppressed and the terrified
Who will stand up for the weak
The helpless and the suffering
I won't turn a blind eye, walk the other side
While slaves make our shoes and our wedding rings too
While children are bought, their innocence sold
How long will we wait for You to take us away

How quickly I forget each day starts out much the same. The only real difference is the size of the bag that travels with me.
