A Conversation for Trafalgar: A perspective on Nelson

Today it is October 21 2005.

Great Britain commemorates and honours their great admiral Nelson.
They celebrate the victory at Trafalgar and they have good reason to do so.

But my heart was unexpectedly uplifted, when I saw at BBC 2, that in Trafalgar áll soldiers, from áll nations that were involved in that battle, were visibly commemorated.(groups with different uniforms)

Five thousand bodies still lay at the bottom of the sea, for 200 years. (Of course these dead should remain there in sea.) Bodies of young boys from different nations

Thát specific and collective commemoration is a real step forward.
