I'll Walk Alone
On Remembrance Day it is important to remember that most wars are fought by children. Wars are declared and set in motion by old men, but they are always fought by youth. Usually soldiers are young, many are poor, and most are scarred by their involvement.
It is also important to remember the other victims of war- the women and children who are caught in crossfire, collateral damage, rape trophies for a sick army mentality.
It is important to remember the difference between wars then and now. There has been an evolution of how we kill, now we can kill by drone, by proxy, war is like a video game with real consequences.
Game over. Remember war sucks.
