  1. Lovely. Beautifully written.
    I’ve always thought there’s a difference between “unremembered” and “forgotten,” the difference being that to forget we have to lose a memory, but with unremembrance the memory does not necessarily have to have been formed in the first place. As an aside, it’s why I always felt the “Forgotten War” was the wrong way to refer to the Korean War. Nobody remembered it from the get-go, so it never had a chance to form an impression on our collective consciousness/memory.
