Memorial Day honors to all those who suffered, and to some who still do, in defense of our country....
I think our veterans who have served in past wars would be
embarrassed by how we seem to put less and less emphasis on human life and suffering.
We kill civilians, children, we bomb hospitals, we use drones so we
don't get out hands dirty. For such a 'christian' nation it always
strikes me as odd that we still have the death penalty and we still send
young people off to kill others. Wars are seldom about protection but
more about greed and power and the people that authorize them always
ensure their family isn't involved or if they are, they ensure they are
in a 'safe job' away from the 'front'. So this Memorial Day, I wish to
honor all those who served willingly, yet knew they would struggle if it
came time to kill someone else.....some come home and continue to
struggle. Bless their hearts, their souls and the families that mourn
them. As a 'christian' nation with 'family values'.....I think that we
can come up with a better way then sending our young men and women off
to kill or be killed, maim or be maimed. With all the brilliant minds
out there I pray they can come up with a better way.
