Please, not for a moment was I intending to pass judgement. It was actually meant in jest. I often find myself repeating parental behaviour patterns; it’s a fairly normal and natural reaction, according to my daughter (Psychology degree) who often tells me I sound “like Grandma”, especially when I’m obsessing about something. I cannot ever begin to imagine the horrors your parents endured, and which doubtless never left them. My fear about this inhuman, dark time in our history is that humanity, if we don’t keep acknowledging it ourselves and informing future generations, will forget. My father survived the horrors of jungle warfare, and my mother lost her husband of only six months on Kokoda. They remained affected all their lives.
