‘There is something about Willie Goldfinch, which I suggest will be echoed by all serving Military personnel, and their families today.
I do not ‘claim’, I state, as fact, that the ‘Peoples’ Memorial’ serves as a humble yet honourable recognition to all those who gave up their lives so that this country enjoys the freedom bequeathed us by a few. We seem to forget that for every life lost, family heartbreak follows.
Let this Memorial remind us all; while politicians come and go, in modern times they commit our children to battles often lost, then move on to the next one as ‘political poodles’ and to get rich into the bargain. Most often, they simply could not care a damn.’
Well done, Willie Goldfinch. You are to be saluted.
