Memorial Day….No More Deaths through War

ImageMemorial Day always creates tension within my soul.  I never want to judge the young men and women who sign up for the service.  On the other hand, I think of their going off with a gun as unacceptable in our day, in our times of greater understanding of the dignity of all human beings–at war or not.  We must always remember those who have died, but we MUST change the national and international scenes to negotiation, mediation, reconciliation, rather than to the use of weapons and torture exercised on each other….THE TIME IS NOW.
