Three children write a desperate letter to the Secretary of State for War
Oh, my heart!
Brilliant and so touching. ♥️
Cried my eyes out. ❤️
Thanks. That was truly heartwarming and deeply satisfying. I enjoyed reading the piece thoroughly.
This summer I've been reading books about WWII. I added Nicholas Monsarrat's THE CRUEL SEA, a book I and my 1970 AP English class convinced our teacher was too bloody for us tender things (and I wish Dr Davis was still alive so I could apologize and talk to her about it). In the monstrosity of war, there are kindnesses we can do, and I held my breath as I read down the page to Lord Kitchener's response. Then, a big sigh of relief. The children were spared a little longer before the ugliness of the world descended on them. Much love to them, if they are still alive.
War is ugly, this little kindness would not have been forgotten !
Aw, so sweet
Goosepimpling and glorious! My cheeks are wet.
Even wars do have a kind story to share. 🖤
