to remember is to end all war

So the curtain fell, over that
tortured country of unmarked
graves and unburied fragments of
men: Murder and massacre: The
innocent slaughtered for the
guilty: The poor man for the
sake of the rich: The man of no
authority made the victim of the
man who had gathered importance
and wished to keep it.

—David Starret, 9th Royal Irish
Rifles, Irish Peace Park, Messines
