I find myself very moved by all these stories. I am so happy that POV has included this forum as part of their presentation of Mary's Wedding.
One thought that keeps returning to me is that an astounding one person in a hundred of Canada's population was killed in the Great War; so that means one in fifty males, more or less. In today's Canada, that would be--what--350,000 people? How wrenching would the loss of that many people be for us? Canada would be a very different place today, had we not lost so much of that generation.
