I started to tell about the new murals inside this Christian cemetery a few weeks ago.
Its address in Jerusalem's old German Colony is 41 Emek Refaim; one possible translation of the street name is "Valley of Ghosts."
Many of the gravestones have biblical quotations, especially from the Psalms (but I'm saving those for PsalmChallenge meme).
Some, the more modern ones, have sentimental words like "See you soon, darling," or "We miss you," or "Gone home."
But my favorite is the home-spun wisdom on former British soldier Johnny Shortlidge's stone:
"WE DO WHAT WE GOTTA DO AND THEN WE GO."
This post goes to Our World Tuesday, to Signs, Signs, and to the growing and fascinating new cemetery meme Taphophile Tragics.
