Sins of the Grandchildren

The hope of every parent is that their children will learn from their mistakes and not repeat them.

The hope of every soldier is that the sacrifices they make aren't in vain.

It's this hope that keeps us moving forward, against all odds.

Hope of a better tomorrow vs fear that this is all there is.

When we put ourselves first, we doom our children to suffer as our grandparents did.  We dihonour the sacrifices made on our behalf.  We take a step back.

And come that much closer to proving the cynics right.
