There is a very troubled world again, with so many lives being lost…..in the name of peace?
This Sunday in the UK at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we remember not only those who made the ultimate sacrifice during WWI and WWII, but also the many servicemen, servicewomen and many others who have lost their lives since in the name of peace.
Have the world leaders learnt nothing from the past? Acts of terrorism and acts of aggression have gained nothing and only lead to greater loss of life. Many families are affected globally by these acts, for each casualty is a son, daughter, brother, sister, father, mother and the loss to their family is immense and leaves a wound that can never heal.
When will our leaders learn that aggression has gained nothing since 1945? They still continue to abuse their positions and send many people to war in the knowledge that casualties will be high…..but they don’t care, for these people are but numbers and soon become forgotten, but their families and friends can never forget.
