Letters to the Editor

Great War began 100 years ago

Editor: One hundred years since...

King vs. Kaiser

Cousin vs. Cousin

We wished they would have been wiser

 

One hundred years since ...

Empire vs. Empire

Kingdom vs. Kingdom

With consequences dire

 

One hundred years since ...

Man vs. Man

Army vs. Army

It was never God’s plan

 

One hundred years since ...

Nation vs. Nation

Bayonet vs. Gunner

Children lose their station

 

One hundred years since ...

Son vs. Son

Father vs. Father

I wonder which side won

 

One hundred years since ...

The Great War announced

Bodies splayed in trenches

Humanity denounced

 

We remember — the First World War, August, 1914 to November, 1918.

 

Wendy Welk,

Langley
