Quote of the Day: H. G. Wells

December 8th, 2009 • Posted in Quote of the Day |

My daughter has been learning about the Second World War in school (yay for our schooling system!), and I’ve been reading quite a lot about that war lately.  I’ve always been interested in it – I had family at Dunkirk, Singapore, prisoner on the Railway of Death, Africa, and on the Norway raids.  And it’s good to see Ellie’s interest as well.  So many people I know are hardly aware it even happened.

This is one of the best quotes about war I’ve ever heard.  It’s from H. G. Wells, and  it speaks so much of why we do need to tell our kids about what happened.

“If we don’t end war, war will end us.”
