What? Stephen Crane wrote an anti-war poem War is Kind?

to think that we raise beautiful little boys ...girls too these days , and send them off to ruin and be ruined. I hate war...not those that fight but those who know nothing about what it is all about, and send other people's children.

In war, nobody wins. And yet we keep fighting.

Why?

My grand-uncle, who was our surrogate grandfather because ours had died (his brother), served in WWI. We asked him about the war. Always, in his short and clipped  broken English, came the words, "War is bad."  I could add a litany to that, but I think he got it right! If humanity could transcend wars - well, humanity would have to transcend itself, I feel. Lovely post.

No one can come back from these wars and remain the same. One does not feel it at the time because it all feels strangely normal. A job that has to be done comrades that would risk injury to help each other and no condemnation what ever the moral aspect really should be. Then one returns to a strangely simple way of living, but it is all there in the mind but no one can see it.
