But here in this graveyard that is still No Man's land the countless white crosses in mute witness stand. To man's blind indifference to his fellow man to a whole generation that was butchered and damned.Elfwine was raised in a peacetime Rohan. I wondered what the living king's son would think of the dead king's son's last moments. Would he find it meaningful? 3) "Roll With It" what if the enemy isn't in a distant land what if the enemy lies behind the voice of command the sound of war is a child's cry behind tinted windows, they just drive by all I know is that those who are going to be killed aren't those who preside on capitol hill I told him, don't fill the front lines of their war those assholes aren't worth dying for but he said roll with it, baby make it your career keep the home fires burning till america is in the clear I am tired of glorifying war, however. Most of the most poignant WWI poets concluded that it was not worth the sacrifice. I think a large part of Tolkien's fantasy is a struggle that is worth fighting. There is a side who is in the right, in his stories.

The closest I can come in the Ardaverse is a woman of Rhun coming to terms with the fact that her husband died for less than a noble cause.
