My grandparents were veterans and they rarely, if ever, talk about their time at war.
The stories they told stop at a certain point and the rest of the details are all second hand given by those who knew them. I have a great appreciation for what they had to endure based on those stories.
There are many facts about war: number of battles, strategy, soldier deaths, instances of disease, types of warfare, leaders, blunders, etc.
While those can be eye-opening, they don’t resonate like the stories we hear.
It’s the story… the individual story… that has the greatest impact on our sensibilities.
The reason for change is the story we hear.
Remember the story.
