Well this question won't cross your mind if you lived during that time in recent history.
When you read through some of the chapters you may recognize a time, a place or an event.
We are all aware of the way these men and women were and in some cases are still treated. Hopefully, these stories will bring light to these brave people who defended the weak in a time that it was not popular. I salute you all. I also hope if any of you read "Ways of War" or any of the novels that follow, you will know that there is respect for you between the lines and words written. No words will ever be able to express that which should have been communicated to you then. May God bless all of you.
And so the story goes. The time pass us by and we have still not learned the lessons. Maybe we have forgotten our history and so forgotten to learn from it. Let us all look to each other, and learn together. It is time to be a great nation of people. If we learn our lessons we can move forward and heal.
"Ways of War" can show us that power and control solve nothing. Even as those protesters called for peace, they were rioting and looting. This example does not inspire peace. If nothing else lets learn that.
