Death and Glory

May 29th, 2017 by G.

This link between memory and prospection has emerged in research showing that people with damage to the brain’s medial temporal lobe lose memories of past experiences as well as the ability to construct rich and detailed simulations of the future. Similarly, studies of children’s development show that they’re not able to imagine future scenes until they’ve gained the ability to recall personal experiences, typically somewhere between the ages of 3 and 5.

Memorial Day is a day for looking backwards and honoring the dead. It also reminds us of our own death. In acknowledging the sacrifice of the dead, we remember our own foregone opportunities for sacrifice and wonder for what future sacrifices it is that God has prolonged our lives beyond theirs.

Memorial Day is about the dead and honor. Death and glory. A holiday more alien to the spirit of The Current Year is hard to imagine.
