Lay them to rest

Can we let the demons of the past lay at rest? Or will ghouls, grave robbers and salvage divers insist on dragging them out of their graves on a regular basis?

I have to admit, I bear my own packs of resentments and unforgiven offenses, as you might have been able to guess from my second paragraph. I still have a visceral reaction of loathing when I see names like Wolfowitz, Perle, Kristol, or Chalabi. I still harbor some grudges, and nurse old wounds—but I have to toss those overboard as well if I am to move on without becoming embittered.

Let them go. Let them all go. Let them rest in peace.
