I just had to let you know how much I enjoyed reading Bob Groeneveldâ€™s column [War is hellâ€¦ and really stupid, July 29 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance].
I remember my grandfather telling me stories about the First World War.
I donâ€™t believe that he thought all the suffering and hell was worth it; he suffered for the rest of his life from shell shock, as they called it then.
I couldnâ€™t agree with Bob more. It is really stupid, and amazing how otherwise intelligent people make the decisions they do.
I guess a few million lives here or there doesnâ€™t make much difference in the scheme of things.
