Great sermon, Jude. “That is the nature of modern warfare. Death is not reserved for the soldier, but the children and families. The old, the young, the unlucky.”

I don’t have the source for this nearby, but I remember one historian describing WW II as the first large scale warfare aimed at civilians. The difference in between the WW I death toll of 20-30 million dead (depending on who’s counting) and WW II’s 60-72 million dead is tens of millions of dead civilians.
