I was only 19.

Having recently been to Vietnam, I cam across a sketch on Fast Forward that reminded me of the original. It is a thought provoking song on war. We don’t know how lucky we are.

It is a good reminder not to glorify war. Remember those men who went forth and sacrificed so much for in the end, nothing. We owe them so much and I am humbled at my problems when I think of what they went through. But never glorify war. It is brutal and involves the horror of death on both sides.

This song brings a human element to the tragedies. Thats why i like it.
