This is a really serious issue you have spoken....Wars are waste of time, waste of resources and waste of lives...Yea, there may be people out there who do not deserve to live but that doesn't mean that you have to kill even the most innocent ones.
I've read some war essays a while back and those were the things that happened in the past and although there probably were more unwritten deaths than written, still it is worth writting about such issues.
I did find your piece a bit disturbing in terms of structure....I felt that at times i didn't want to keep reading or that i didn't know how certain things were to be read because there was a lack of puntuaction although i did see some full stops. Still it wasn't enough and didn't really read like it was suppose to be read...
Apart from that, i believe you've done pretty good....very vivid images here and worth reading.
Do take care... Hope that we meet soon again.... Irina
