Let’s cel­e­brate peace, not war

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion -

I saw the ad in the Sound Tele­graph (24/10) for the 100th An­niver­sary of the Armistice ball.

I won­der if all the peo­ple who sup­port An­zac Day (the com­mem­o­ra­tion of the start of the bloody, bru­tal de­feat of the Aus­tralian and New Zealand mil­i­tary when they at­tacked Turkey on April 25, 1915) will cel­e­brate the end of the WWI slaugh­ter (on both sides), or are they so blinded by the act of war and hero­ism that the out­break of peace will go un­no­ticed?

May the ball be a suc­cess and may the cel­e­bra­tion of peace take over the com­mem­o­ra­tion of war in the fu­ture.
