I haven't worked out how to embed video in my blog yet... but here's a link.
It's the final few scenes of the film Gallipoli. I've seen the movie about four times throughout my life, and each time it chills me. This is a fictionalised account of the Gallipoli landing in WW1, but I cry for the loss of beautiful young lives wasted in bungled or futile military campaigns throughout time. I cry for families losing loved ones, children growing up without parents or parents outliving their children (a parent's worst nightmare).
See...? It gets me every time.
Thanks to three buttons for "this is" and flightless boyds for this week's theme.
