A glorious sunshine weekend followed after a dental clean & shine on Friday in the city
a drive to Cowes to spend some days...
Yesterday was the Vietnam veterans war museum visit.
Which is quite amazing.
I personally do get quite angry at war memorials as it is to me never wonderful.
This is the disruption to young people's lives
The rest of us partying a lot.
During the time I lived in Brisbane many were waiting to go from National Conscription Service to perhaps Vietnam.
The contrast of the life before they left to what they endured because a stupid Govt sent them..
Is so confronting & we were all quite ignorant.
When the guys came back on leave or brought home ...
it was wonderful but we assumed they's adapt back to the life of freedom.
This stuff says we should never send people to war
Why fight.... surely these decisions for a nation to engage in war is a political decision....
Sorry but it all leaves me with a grim feeling when war has been glorified ever .
But some of the museum pieces showed how vulnerable they were..or the size of the machinery & the ships & how little some of the helicopters were..
