Stories and poems put us in the picture, others are observations. Example of this –
In Vietnam Veteran by Linda M. Crate
‘They would have celebrated his death
But they won’t celebrate his life’
And Refugees by Kirsty A. Niven
‘The girl held out her hands to me
Wrapped in soiled clothes
Layer upon layer.
She could be mine, she could be any of ours,
But the government tells us this is no matter’
The terrible thought that occurred to me while reading this was that every writer published in this book, and for every reader too, in some form we have experienced, or know of somebody who has fought in a, war.
We are not immune to it as we watch the news on TV, or read the newspapers with images that have become symbolic. We must ask is fighting for peace going to bring peace?
