Meeting the Soldier You Killed

I love the imagery in this moment from C.S. Lewis,

I have often thought to myself how it would have been it, when I served in the First World War, I and some young German had killed each other simultaneously and found ourselves together a moment after death. I cannot imagine that either of us would have felt any resentment or even any embarrassment. I think we might have laughed over it.
