Memorial Day

Today is a day that we are asked to remember those who have fallen in battle. This is not unreasonable. However, what this day should not become is an opportunity to glorify war. For all the grandstanding about duty, heroism and patriotism, wars are mostly about the death and maiming of human beings. One of the Commandments of the Old Testament is "Thou Shalt Not Kill." Why does this suddenly seem OK to ignore when wearing a uniform? I include the following clip from YouTube, entitled "Journey's End", to call attention to the results of war. These were the same in the Twentieth Century as they are today.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make was a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
