1918 (Part 5 of A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1)

Delight tempered by disease.

“And yet, despite the bedlam, the incomparable scenes of joy, there were many solemn scenes. Sober garbed women, whose husbands and sons would never return, stood on the curb, a strange mingling of emotions stirring in them. Old men saw the hand of God in the demonstration, and from hospital cots of pain bed-ridden soldiers raised their wracked bodies to listen, and smiles of contentment sank back on their pillows – ‘thank God, after all, our sacrifices have not been in vain’.”
