Erdreja has clearly wants to forget this and forcing her to remember it, can not bring any good. Or then forcing her to remember those we have lost instead, would logically in turn force her to remember why they were lost.
Something horrendous that happens to people early in their lives, will forget about it as a defence mechanism. I think forcing something to remember something like Arrekesh and the people we lost (sp?) will only bring misery, both to us and Edreja.
Also "lighting up" a living pattern in the planes of unlife? to me that's just a beacon of pain waiting to happen not only to that pattern, but to the person we are channeling though to light up these people. (I dont know how rites work thats my interpretation.)
While i hope nothing bad will happen, know this. Ill be watching and celebrating the lives of the people we lost, rather than mourning their death, all the while keeping my distance from the rite, swords close for any eventuality, listening for the bells.
