    Too many memorials : too many wars : too many mothers looking for the son and a name may be all they find.

    Really extraordinary, Nikolay. The very picture of desperate grief, tragedy, longing for the acknowledgement of service, for explanation. You speak for every nation and every war with this.

  • Thank you for your wonderful words, Barbara!
