A Thought

By

Soldiers are coming to trial for alleged abuse.

Another is coming to trial perhaps for desertion for an anti-war stance.

There is unexpected resistance.

There is much questioning, buck passing, name calling etc.

But the bottom line for all of us, for each and every person who wakes and draws breath in the morning is that we are all accountable for our actions, inactions, and ultimately, for what is done in our names to each other and to the planet.

Are we reaching the place in history where we are beginning to understand that?

"The real voyage of discovery is not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes."
Proust


As Barbara Bush observed:
War is not nice.
