No glory in going to war

To the editor:

Re: Rememberance Day:

My father was a young boy at the end of the first world war. He told me that a soldier returning from the war came up to him as he was playing on the street and said to him, “Son, never go to war.”

This message needs to be remembered and shared with the sons and daughters of Canada.

Dave Carter,
