You have left me with so many unanswered questions Gwilym, was that your intention?
It's just a factual report. It could happen to anybody. I guess that's the point. So the answer is, yes.
As it was it was my family under the table and it was the next door house where the victims were and it was WWII, but it could just as easily be today and another family and another elderly couple in another place. We learn nothing. We make the same mistakes over and over again. We have done for eons. And we will continue into the dim distant future . . . the root cause is greed.
I had a friend who once worked in Lebanon, in a day centre. He had a great anecdote about sitting under the table in his work-room with a Muslim colleague listening to American shells whistling overhead. (Fortunately they all did whistle overhead). He used to say the experience had a critical effect on his world-view.
Dominic I love your last sentence or rather your friend's last sentence which fortunately wasn't his last. Thanks.
