Letter: In honour of D-Day: No More
Lettertotheeditormale

While watching news coverage of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, Niagara-on-the-Lake resident Harry Hearth penned this short poem in honour of D-Day and in honour of the men and women who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today. 

 

No more grieving mothers and wives wearing black diamond patches on their coats,

No more conversation about Mr. Smith, who lived in #21, being gassed at the Somme,

No more stories about our math teacher telling the class how it was being a prisoner of war,

No more of my pal having no Dad.

No More War.
