Sad­dened by ter­ri­ble waste of life

Western Morning News - - Letters -

When I was a child a car hit a horse just down the road from where I was play­ing.

I was shooed off by adults, but the blood and the suf­fer­ing of the beast had a pro­found ef­fect on me, as have the pic­tures of horses in bat­tle ever since.

I visit bat­tle­fields when ever I am able to pay my grate­ful re­spects, while I see the loss of men and their an­i­mals as a ter­ri­ble waste.
