“I chose not to participate in the trenches this year or the years previous for two reasons.
1. I am far too wimpy and would freeze my buns off, as well as let my trench-mate down. By probably digging a severely crappy trench.
2. I do not support fighting under any circumstances. Call me a pacifist, but glorifying war by honouring the people partaking in it in front of the children, the future of our world, is a bad idea in my imagination.”
However, I do believe that the Ceremony and Trench Project do a good job at revealing some of the horrors of war. Perhaps if we spent the night in a Jewish Ghetto or in tunnels in South Asia, I’d participate as it would do a better job of showing the disgusting reality of the human reality of self-slaughter.”
