Thoughts On Memorial Day 2012

Thanks to Ed Kendrick 
for passing this on to me today:

Could it be that we have lost the true cost of war as we mourn its dead ~ could it be that flowers and flags can never justify the inhumanity of war ~ could it be that all wars are lost because there are no true winners and lastly why are we continuing to justify our current illegal occupations by falsely calling them wars. In wartime, everything is done to subvert the force of love but in the end ~ only love prevails: Allen L Roland

'Remember the dead with solemn respect,
and remember the liars and lies who killed them.'

     In addition to the above clip, Ed also shared with me some other important information -- "No More Wars For Israel."  I very much agree with him on this matter, and want to say so here.  I expect and intend to say more about this in the near future.  The subject is of great (grave) significance.

     Thanks again, Ed, for all your wisdom, honesty, and bravery.

  1. I am reminded of Rudyard Kipling's couplet, reflecting on the death of his son in World War I,

    'If any question why we died,
    Tell them, because our fathers lied.'
