POW = Prisoner of War You're getting so much that I am doubtful its your son's past life, but more likely to be your own. Yes, it was a different time and your soul had a different body. War experiences in one life can be so devastating that it can lead to anti-war feelings in the next life. Plus, I think, conditions are ripe for another world war, and maybe we are reacting to that with a "not again" attitude. I don't know, but its good that you are trying to change and become a better person. Maybe that's the point of remembering.
