I've blogged before on the subject of war and the 100 million or so people who lost their lives in wars during the last century.
If Anzac Day means that the horrors of war are brought to the forefront of our minds then I think that is a Good Thing. If it means that we concentrate on the glorification of the heroics of war then I have severe reservations.
To me all war is anathema and, on balance, I think that the more we remember that then the less likely we are to end up in another war. I would be much more comfortable, however, if the evidence of the past backed up that feeling and that hope.
