remember

November 11, 2009

Today remember that war is wrong except in the most exceptional circumstances. Remember that war is horrific for its participants and for its victims but also for its victors who remember too well their unnatural acts.

Remember that most armies are made from civilians forced to fight. Remember that this is a sensitive and complex issue and both sides can be debated effectively. Remember our freedom from not being at war. Remember that veterans are often shunned by the very governments and armies that incited them to give everything to the cause.
