There is always so much to ponder regarding Armistice Day. When I suggest speaking about the Anglo-Zulu War, folks often challenge me regarding the “glorification of war”? Rest assured, there is nothing glorious about war, in my opinion. Instead I believe there are human stories to be shared rather, weaved together explaining a story about war. Find yourself amongst thousands of graves on the Somme, and read the oft-repeated epitaph “Will some kind hand in a foreign land place flowers on my son’s grave”. Poor families who had no idea about war, and had no means of ever visiting their sons’ graves. If you feel telling their stories glorifies war, there must be a hole in your soul.
As the images emerge from the Ukraine and Gaza, let us consider very carefully the implications of war, and those who went before.
They shall grow not old, as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning time, we shall remember them too. Lest we forget…
