So now we go to war.
Posted Mar 19, 2003 - 23:16:47

Hmmm. I hate wars. I hate violence. I hate needless death and destruction. I hate the darkness that pulls within humanity making it want to kill itself.

We live in a violent world, where darkness pulls apart our very beings. Why? Because we let it. We choose to be puppets, we paint ourselves into corners - forcing our own hand towards destruction.

Our attention is unfocused, and we have proven again and again that we do not see the direction that we must follow. Isaac Asimov said, in his book Foundation, that "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetant" - yet our leaders have chosen violence over peace.

Our leaders have shown that they do not deserve the power we've entrusted in them. The current administration made sure that we could have no alternative, and the blood shall spill. And it won't be the blood of those who made this desicion, no. It will be the blood of the soldiers who serve our country. Noble men and women, whose honor I do not question, will die to prove that greedy men with no long term vision are as flawed as I now see.

I pray for those soldiers. I pray for their families. I pray for every wife, husband, brother, sister, mother, father and child who will be left behind. I pray that those soldiers will make it back alive.

Because I know that many will not.
