In Australia and New Zealand it is ANZAC day.
And in remembering we might ask questions.
How do we allow war to happen?
Will we humans ever find a way to be together without the need to kill each other?
What happens that those who decide decide to profit from killingry? And not just profit, to profit obscenely.
That the military industrial complex is the biggest spend on the USA government balance sheet. The bully impulse grows stronger, not weaker.
History is the place to learn, to reflect, to ask, to become adult. To realise the mistakes of our past and not repeat them.
If history was a classroom and we the students, there is really only one score. Epic fail.
Today we remember, tomorrow we forget.
My heart breaks.
