My inspiration at 17 and at 51. Rest in Peace, Vera. Your legacy of pacifism, feminism and courage lives on.

I have just watched more of the film "Testament of Youth," which is based on your remarkable autobiography. The film, as I've said, is not nearly so good as the book, but at least it makes the story of your early life available to a wide audience.

I just watched part of "Testament of Youth" on YouTube. I saw the part in which you learn of Roland Leighton's death. The film is not nearly so good as your book on which it is based, but after watching it I felt compelled to post this message.

"Testament of Youth" affected me more than any other book yet published about that useless & appalling conflict, World War One.

I have been reading "Letters From a Lost Generation," a book that contains extensive correspondence from Roland Leighton, Geoffrey Thurlow, Victor Richardson, Edward Brittain, and you. All four men were killed during WW I. You survived, and described "the killing times" in "Testament of Youth." How you endured the pain you suffered when Roland and Edward died is incomprehensible to me. But you eventually had a happy marriage and a successful career as an author. I am glad and grateful that you did.

Vera, thank you for your work for peace. As an Anglican Pacifist Fellowship member myself, I will try to carry on your legacy in my own small way. It is your work, though, that has reflected Christ's compassionate peace throughout the turbulence of the twentieth century and into the 21st. May your books continue to be read. I also hope that you may continue to be a role model, especially for young women. So many join the military today that it breaks my heart. I hope that you may remain as an alternative role model of a strong, independent lady who also renounced warfare. Rest now in Christ's love. David
