Imagine the emotional families of the soldiers, frightened they would never come home.
Imagine the soldiers standing in the trenches as the bitter cold mud surrounded their feet.
Imagine as they held the bodies of their beloved friends that had been blasted by the guns.
Imagine as they stood in the hazy horizon wishing they could go home.
Imagine as they turned pale with wounds all across their bodies, the screams, the shouts, the pain.
Imagine as night fell and they buried their mates.
Imagine the war has ended.
Imagine the tears of joy of the soldiers that went home, but Imagine
the tears of loss of the soldiers that didn’t return.
REST IN PEACE
