A Sorrow so great

Prince Charles is going to visit War cemeteries in Northern Italy. One hundred years ago there was fighting around the top of Italy. Many young man lost their lives, Italians, Austrians, British, Germans. Young men who were loved and never returned home.
When you walk round a war cemetery you have  a lump in your throat all the time. they are beautifully kept and tranquil, a sharp contrast to the horror that caused them to exist.
These places should surely make everyone determined that such things should never happen again.
There are books in these cemeteries where visitors can leave a comment. People come to honour their long lost relatives or to pay respects to those who lost sacrificed their lives. To a lose a loved one is a sorrow so great that time cannot heal and these cemeteries remind us of this.
