David to me this evoked the thought or question What is better to be dead or alive this the most poignant striking line explains Or Still alive but ROAMING AROUND IN RAGS Having to live out each day with the unspoken out fall or subsequent consequences

Yes indeed Sir And to them i hand my head in shame and pay homage . I myself crumble like biscuits dunked in tea in the face of any situation that requires an adult sadly

Some people cope better in all walks of life Christopher be it up all night with a crying baby or picking up the bits on a battlefield, we all have different limitations and breaking points

Not like i said David. Like you wrote roaming around in rags. How on earth or what is the difference between those who can cope and those who can't. I suppose is up to how sensitive that individuals mind is

Yeah Christopher your on the button it’s about coming to terms with what you just went through having survived looking around at each other and barely recognizing the survivors, the savagery lay bare before you, the consequences of reality starts to kick in, some cope others won’t, cheers David
