I'm officially two thirds of the way through my annual cycle of mourning events. The season for me runs from Patriot's day in September through Veteran's Day in November and includes mourning for my dead shipmates from the USS Cole.
Because I once played trumpet, my mourning process includes the playing of Taps on those three days.
