To argue with a grave marker is futile, hopeless, pathetic. It is too heavy, hard, cold and permanent. It will always be there for you when you return. It will maintain itself, and it's reflectiveness. It is there as a reminder, a memory, a statement, holding your place in line, asserting the last vestiges of an identity, providing the most basic information about an individual. "Birthdate, Deathdate, Mother, Father, Daughter, Son." it reminds us. "Look at your reflection." it tells us.
