War

Please read this poem, and then this one before continuing.
In college I wrote this paper (for an English Literature class) comparing the two views of war expressed in the poems you’ve just read. War is not glorious, even if good things can come from it. I would not say it is never necessary, because there are things that are worth fighting for, such as freedom. The thing is, people shouldn’t have to fight and kill each other. Wars shouldn’t happen… but they do. Men and women shouldn’t have to die, but they have and will continue to die so long as humanity continues to allow its difference to culminate into wars.
