Lest we forget one man's dream.
"We have lived to see Europe degraded to a foul something which no image can so much as shadow forth...Every landmark has been submerged in an Atlantic of blood...We are gripped in the ancient bloodiness of that paradox which bids us kill life in order to save life."
Men such as Thomas Kettle were undaunted by what they saw before them, and allowed themselves to believe in the best of humanity, and the possibility of a world without war. In one of his last letters to his wife he wrote,
"I want to live, too, to use all my powers of thinking, writing and working, to drive out of civilisation this foul thing called War, and to put in its place understanding and comradeship."
Let us not forget this one man's dream.
