War certainly ain't no FUN! How many Mother's bawled for their sons
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die.
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.
We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it.
War Quotes Source : http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/topics/topic_war.html
The cries and woes of war
how many young men left their
homes hoping to return.
Fighting for their country
will make them proud.
Hardened hearts left with
guns, and sailed away to
sea where they’ll be offloaded
to fight like a man and be brave
and bold as a lion. There's seldom
a phone to make connections home,
a letter will take months to reach.
Why oh why do we sail these perilous
seas , keeping a close eyes on our enemies
as we sail to shore. Guns charged and bombs
just waiting to be thrown.
Is this the life we wished for why should
we kill these humans we once adored.
brothers and sisters falling ,they all slumped
to the floor. Chaos ,as smoke fills the air,
buildings tumbles and rumbles. Noises
sends people and animals running wild.
Soldiers longing for shelter from the cold
longing for, a place called home.
too many casualties , severed hands
and feet, lost of vision, lost of hope
oh Lord give us strength to cope.
How many mothers bawl for their sons
how many wives were left undone,
war is certainly no fun……..
