Hail to the Beloved Dead who have passed in this year of pain and strife.
Hail to our Ancestors! We ask for strength for the coming days.
We call to the Ancestors who have been oppressed, who lived and died under fascism, who lived and died under dictators, despots, and slavers to haunt those who are in power who are fascisits, opppressors, and dictators. May they feel your pain and suffering every night in their dreams, now and until they reform or die.
We hail those who have died alone, lost, and bereft. We know you are there, we see you, and we honor you as the Beloved Dead.
So mote it be.
