Bearing Witness: A Blessing of the Stones on Memorial Day Weekend

On memorial day weekend, we re approach memory and time. Are humans the only ones with memory? If not, what might we learn about the memory that exists within the land, within the soil and stones? How have other cultures recognized the power of standing stones as guardians, gatekeepers and repositories for our collective stories? What stories do we want to leave in our wake, when we become part of the soil?
