Was the war worth it?
Response to Jessie Popes "Who's for the Game"
When encouraging our youth to enlist in the war I feel it is only fair that they are truly informed of what they are going into. It is not right to glorify the act of war. It is war, it is destruction, it is scary. You will see things that you may never forget. Relationships will be made and destroyed, ending with you staring at the face of dead brother. You may die. However, if you feel that you are brave enough to forget the terror and horrible things you will see and risk your life for your country then all the more power to you. Just remember what I say. I have been discharged from a lost leg. You may end up running into an open field at a line of enemies who will not hesitate to fire. Good Luck.
Anthem for Doomed Youth
Hardness of Heart
The vision of his burning body. Is still in my head
The black sickening smell of burning flesh
