Editorial: looking for stories you want remembered

Looking toward Remembrance Day in a couple of weeks, we’re planning a special edition of the Undercurrent. It will come out November 8, so any submissions must be in by Monday at 5 p.m.

If you have stories of war, of peace, of struggle that you’d like to share and remember, please consider sending them in. If you want some help with a story, please reach out and I’ll do what I can to help you.

If you have a story about how war or struggle affected Bowen Island, we are interested in that too.

Though it will be 100 years since the end of the First World War, we’re not just interested in the world wars.

Struggle exists in many forms. War has transformed with technology, globalization and climate change. It’s sometimes easier to grapple with the distant past. How does war and struggle affect you today? When is it okay to go to war? What can we do to make the world better?

I welcome all stories and perspectives, so long as they don’t fall into the racism that can come with conflict. These aren’t easy topics. They shouldn’t be easy.
