This week's prompt from the 100 Word Challenge For Grown Ups posted on Julia's Place is "...Remember..."
If you're going to remember, remember it all. Not just the victory parades, but the departures as well. Remember the ones who marched away and never returned. Those who said goodbye and never came home again.
Remember the fallen as well as the victorious; both victims of propaganda and an excess of pride. History may be told by the victors, but everyone has a story to tell.
Remember the toil and not just the results. The catastrophically wounded, both inside and out, and the lives lost and not just the end.
If you're going to remember, remember it all.
