  1. Deborah, interesting phrasing on this one. Seek your happiness in the real world and stubbornly hold to it dearly? Have you seen the movie “1917” about a World War I battle that needs to be stopped. One of the most poignant scenes is when a British soldier stumbles into a small apartment in a town that is being shelled and is on fire. He finds a young woman about his age who is caring for a baby she found, not hers. In the tenderest of moments, he shares some milk he had gotten earlier in the day from a cow at a farm, plus some of his rations. The scene is perfectly defined by your saying above. There is no romance, just the tenderest of meetings in a cruel world. Keith

      • Deborah, the movie is pretty graphic, so you may want to pass on it as a whole. It is one reasons why the touches of humanity stand out. There is another scene where the British soldier gets to where he needs to be, but comes upon a group of tired soldiers listening to the beautiful Irish tenor singing a hymnal under the trees before battle. It is also quite powerful. But, the main message is wars should not be fought due to their brutality. Keith
