Respects

Far too many of his friends are buried in Valhalla Cemetary. Fate and circumstance have combined to ensure that many of the Justice Society members have led longer lives than might otherwise be expected, but the price of that longevity is having to endure the slow and steady erosion of friends and family.

Intolerably slow, especially for a Flash - for whom moments can seem like an eternity.

These days, Jay tries to avoid this place, except when another friend is buried, and on certain special occasions. Such as Pearl Harbor Day. The day the All-Star Squadron had been born, and many good men had died.

He stands at the grave of Magno - one of the lesser-known mystery men of the era, and one whom he'd never personally met. The man's body isn't even buried in the grave in front of Jay - after Magno gave his life trying to stop the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, there wasn't enough left to bury. The other mystery-men involved that day had survived, but Magno had given his all.

"I'm sorry we never had you in the All-Star Squadron, Tom. I'm sorry we weren't there to help you and Uncle Sam and the others. You did everything you could have, and I would've been proud to know you."

Jay leans down, setting a small wreath on the grave, and pays his respects in a long moment of silence.

Even a Flash needs to slow down, every once in a while.
