I was out of the office for two days last week to attend a funeral and military burial.  The flag ceremony at the gravesite is deeply affecting and full of symbolism as is the playing of taps that precedes it.  The country is communicating its thanks to the family and friends of the deceased.  In the precise and rigid movements of the soldiers, there is a message of reverence and dignity.  In the formal presentation of the flag to the family, there is restrained grief in words spoken and left unsaid.  The whole ceremony is formulaic, drilled down to the fraction of an inch, but it is precision that communicates so loudly.  It doesn’t take away pain, but salves it somewhat and I am thankful to have witnessed it.
