A few brief words about John Glenn

Sorry for any repeats; the first time did not hit Facebook and LinkedIn properly.

Kemetic vs. Atheist

This might seem off-topic for a minute, but bear with me.

As you may know, John Glenn, Mercury astronaut, Senator, and hero, passed away yesterday.

The Daily Rite that I shared with you guys a while back features these words:

I pour cool water for the akhu,

Shining like gold in the vault of Nut.

May they be cooled.

What does this mean? Nut is the goddess of the sky; therefore, the vault of Nut is the sky itself. The akhu, shining like gold, are the stars. The ancient Egyptians believed that the stars were literally their ancestors, shining down upon them from beyond.

I find myself thinking how altogether appropriate it would be if John Glenn now became a star, shining down on us from the firmament.

Rest in peace, Senator/Colonel Glenn. May you join the akhu.
