Ben Griffin is a founding member of Veterans For Peace UK serving as our National Coordinator from 2011 to 2018. He will retire from VFP at the conclusion of our Annual Gathering in November 2019.
Dear Veterans for Peace
Since 2005, I have been persistently engaged in anti-war activity. I have given my all and it has taken its toll.
When I summon the energy for one more meeting, one more speech or one more action, I no longer have the capacity to absorb the negative psychological by-products.
Difficult as it is, the time has come for me to accept that everyone has a limit and I passed mine some time ago.
At the conclusion of this year’s Annual Gathering, I will retire from Veterans for Peace.
The table attached to this letter spells out in detail the tasks I presently carry out for VFP and information helpful to the process of handover. I await instruction from the Policy group.
I look forward to seeing you all at our Annual Gathering.
I remain at heart a Veteran for Peace.
The future is unwritten.
