I’m going to try to start doing a 15-minute yoga routine before work every day to get a good start to the day. It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing. To go along with the practice, I obviously need a playlist. So here’s the first instance of my 15-minute yoga playlist feature. Hopefully I’ll keep making more and sharing them with you.
[Note: Sorry for they delay on the post. My internet has been giving me problems.]
Memorial Day is one of those holidays that we celebrate as only Americans can. To remember all the soldiers lost in the United States’ wars, we all gather together, have barbecues, and spend time with family and friends. In essence, we celebrate the freedoms that were made possible thanks to soldiers who lost their lives fighting in our wars. And while this is one way to commemorate the lives lost, it seems like the message of the day has been lost in a pile of charcoal, watermelon rind, and leftover hot dogs. The main point of this day is to pay homage to those who gave their lives fighting for our country. So to honor those men and women, here are a few songs about this day; a day when politics are brushed aside, and all can agree that the tragic loss of life is something to be remembered and grieved.
Today is Israel’s Remembrance Day, a day when Israel mourns the loss of its nation’s soldiers and victims of terror. As everyone in the country has spent some time in the army, this is not like Memorial Day in America; there everyone knows someone who has died; everybody has someone to mourn for.
Since many of us are in school or at work, maybe we can take these songs as our own personal way to remember those who have fallen.
Elliott Smith – Memory Lane
Explosions In The Sky – Remember Me As A Time Of Day
