What have we learned from war 100 years on?

I was watching the start of the Championship game with the Sheffield derby match tonight and I was pleased with the dignity of the remembrance ceremony among everybody before the match started.
I can look back and also remember what my father did in Europe (Italy), but thankfully he came home unscathed. Many didn’t.
The older I have become I now think far differently to what I used to! As I, like many others in our country are thankful for freedom and liberty – it came with a heavy cost. Good eventually overcame evil.
However, I am reminded of the ultimate sacrifice when Jesus said ‘Father forgive them because they don’t know what they are doing’ when we crucified Him. It is worth remembering and reflecting.
