I Cried Today
Today I witnessed an old soldier lay a flower on the the grave of a friend who died on the beaches of Normandy in 1944.
I struggle to write this post, my eyes are full of tears, for a man who has lost his friend.
Today after all these years, he can still reflect on the comradeship they had together, the dignity that this old man showed, in expressing his love, for his friend makes it very difficult for me to write this post.
What can I say, soldiers of any nation are required to do their duty, but it is their comrades,friends and families who truly understand their sacrifice and we all cry for them.
Let us hope that one day war will be history.
