Band of Brothers

I have just finished watching Band of Brothers about Easy Company in the WWII. I really enjoyed the portrayal of those involved, the reality Spielberg brought to the story. No gun-ho heroes, just ordinary men who gave a lot for what they believed in. Flawed people who did things I struggled to agree with and yet I sit in the comfort of my living room watching this.Men who grew tired and angry that this war was even fought. I give thanks watching this that I have not had to experience what these men and so many others through the centuries have experienced. I am grateful that they did volunteer, and I grieve at what it cost them. I am grateful to those who made this series that allows me to honour all those who went to this war.
