The inevitability of war when we fear others

boko-haram-600x336


Almost every day is a time to think about why we are involved in war. How supporting violence may lead to more violence. How religions taking their scriptures literally feeds pride and righteousness and leads to violence. And how nationalism can lead to fear and then harming others in an effort to preempt war.

But Veteran’s Day is not about the reasoning for war. It’s about those people who are willing to sacrifice their time, well-being, or lives for those who do not, or cannot. In an effort to protect our nation, they put themselves in harm’s way.

Remember and respect these few who are willing and able to do so.
