Bart J D

Bart, your picture of the military graveyard brought back the memories of the images I took in this region many years ago, when I did work on the metaphors by Wilfred Owen. I started out at Hartmannsweiler Kopf(Vosges) and traveled
up the former front line to Arras.
When I came to witness the rows of tombstones of 18 year olds I fled.
Here is a picture of this encounter.

That is indeed horrifying.
We must take care to keep aware of the fact how gruesome it is that so many people lost their lives.
Unfortunately, still going on today. Just a bit further away and on a less massive scale but inexcusable anyway.
