As soon as I saw the word burden I thought of this song.
I suppose this song pops immediately into my head due to the war study we are doing in our homeschooling journey, and the fact that Remembrance Day is just around the corner.
War is a burden that no country or people should have to bear. The sorrow, loss and hardship makes it a difficult thing for a nation and people to work through. No winners or losers, truly in the end. Time has taught us that.
For after mourning,
the dawn will come.
Win or lose
And end is in sight.
So for the time
but also … HOPE
