To dismember injures

and rips us asunder,

to remember submits

and restores by healing.

The disconnect disrupts

creating division,

to remember unites

and enhances the bond.

Clichés are empty words

formulas are hopeless,

to remember enjoins

and creates communion.

With wonder detachment

fosters transformation,

to remember renews

and assures commitment.

Yes, membership outlasts

the emptiness of loss,

to remember matters

and completes our Word.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
