Lest we forget

by Mumbles, over 2 years ago

You may not recognize him. He doesn't always wear his uniform. We're not always at war. Not always. He raised the flag on Canada Day and looked through me. I was immediately taken away from that moment looking into his eyes and these three words resonated in my memories in class talking about the struggles of war and the horrors of living through it. People love this man, but there is a part of him that is damaged and I get the feeling he too knows why we must never forget.

Dulce bellum inexpertis.

War is sweet that have not tasted; All the hearts that war has wasted.
