The link above concerns Vandalism to a War Memorial in a Scottish Town, its immaterial where it happened I just find it appalling that any person would want to do such a thing.
I suppose some would blame it on a lack of understanding on the part of the perpetrators, of the significance of these memorials, but can that be true, the UK is involved in conflicts at this time and most communities in the UK will have been touched in some way by the tragedies these conflicts have caused. The media have covered these events extensively, from the tabloids to the broadsheets we have daily coverage, the recent olympic torch relay featured many disabled serviceman, so ignorance of current affairs cannot be to blame.
I don’t actually have an answer, I just despair for the future of the persons who would carry out such acts.
Perhaps I’m making too much out of this, but surely if we ignore these things we become as culpable as those who commit them.
