Ever since life has existed on the planet competition between and among the different species has been the norm. Survival of the fittest is nature’s way of ensuring that the strongest survive to perpetuate the longevity of the species. It is only among humans that the life and death struggle to survive has encompassed ideologies of religious and political beliefs that have sparked further competition and conflicts…..war.
There is likely no family in history that has not had a father, mother, brother, sister or relative of some description killed in conflict. Wars change the course of civilizations and have far reaching effects for the members of the families who have lost loved ones. These effects do not simply disappear after a nation or a family grieves and strives to carry on with life…. The effect is like throwing a stone into a pool of still water….ripple after expanding ripple reach out in time.

The story is of one such ripple relating to family members….a ripple that stretched 53 years before it hit upon the shores of time and lost family was reunited. As the story shows… unexpected and unpredictable events and changes occur at unexpected times in unexpected ways ……even though it had been fifty-three years since my father’s death during the Korean War.

The motivation in writing such a personal book was to generate awareness of the huge number of families; parents, siblings and children that an event such as the Korean War affects. In far too many instances that I have encountered during my tenure at the United Nations Memorial cemetery in Korea, I have heard family stories that have been fraught with grief and heartbreak without the respite of family reunification or the intervention of a benevolent destiny path. It is my sincere wish that all who read ‘War Ripples’ do so realizing that it is intended to display the pain the war caused and to have the willingness to embrace the directives of destiny to discover the past and the future. See More
