Shall we remember what war is?
What is war?
In the human psyche
it is the fatal flaw,
a perversion of the human mind,
using our greatest brains to create
outrageous threats to all mankind.
the profoundest disrespect
for the sanctity
of human life,
the ultimate in racism,
the collapse of morality.
the ultimate in criminality,
the ultimate obscenity,
the ultimate crime against humanity.
So shall we honour war?
and shall we now praise troubled men?
Or shall we remember what war is
and give true meaning
to "Never again" ?

I'm not sure what that means, I'm not sure of how long it is appropriate to 'own' the sadness ...
