Friday 22 August 2014


Typically our editors' notes are due in the early days of the month and obviously August's one is much overdue and for that, we apologize. We've been caught up in the tidal wave that is August - Founder's Day, FHC Prize Giving, not to mention YJC's own event- An Afternoon with the War Poets. 

We commemorated a centenary since the Great War or World War I the way we know best through literacy and design. And the words "Gas! Gas!" will forever be etched in our minds. To the students who painstakingly worked to pull off an event that some might have thought of as impossible, thank you. Thank you for the weekends spent painting posters and cutting out models and nights spent reciting poems.

In July, we persevered through the hard times. This month, we commemorate. We honour, we pay tribute to and we remember. Though tragic and truly so, both the anniversary of the first world war and the MH17 incident brings about more than just empathy, pity and solemnity. It urges us not to just remember them but to learn from them.

History is meant to teach us not to repeat mistakes of the past but if we look at the world today, war still prevails. Yet in these times, we must not lose hope. For the world has changed tenfold from centuries ago - new and improved technology, medicine, communication. War, conflict and peace is simply another big, tangled web of an issue but it can be unknotted. The shining heroes of the wars and tragedies of the past will not die in vain for they have shone the light to guide us to a peaceful tomorrow. 

The devastation of the MH 17 tragedy was one particular tragedy of a bigger war elsewhere that we will never forget. It is the epitome of the saying "When the rich wage war, it is the poor who die." This accident, has turned out to be a tragic, senseless, loss, another number in the casualties of war statistics. Another reason why it is so important that we learn and pray for the victims, who have at last returned home.

In commemoration and respect to the lost lives, we will remember and will forever carry them with us in our hearts.
