If only that could be true.
There will always be more, unfortunately, as long as some want what others have or hate them for looking different or for worshipping the “wrong” deity.
Nice sentiment, but good luck with that.
Sadly, it really seems to say “Evermore!”
A murder of crows… because the crows feasted upon the dead after battles.
John, my friend, you’ve said what so many of us believe. Would that it were!
Wouldn’t it be nice if they gave a war and nobody came?
Please send a copy to Putin.
amen to that…
Thank you John. Let’s honor those who died to protect us but not fall into the trap of glorifying war.
It’s so sad and pathetic we have a government that doesn’t do anything when it’s needed the most.
Instead the government is at war with itself….
I sometimes wonder about today’s kids ? What happened to , " insane asylums ? It’s NOT MY FAULT ! Perfect society will never be. Human condition. Sometime back in the 30’s, ( I think ) some ass h – le farmer loaded a new school, in upper Michigan, ( I think ) up with dynamite and killed some 30 + kids. If the rest of the dynamite had gone off, the death rate wood have been in the hundreds. He couldn’t pay the taxes on his farm due to the new school tax rates. True story, look it up. He blew himself up while complaining, not far from the school. Nutso !
“Come on Wall Street, don’t be slow…”
I really wonder about todays undisciplined kids. Whatever happened ? It’s , NOT MY FAULT ! EXCUSES ! Probably the worst school disaster was in 1927 when 44 students and teachers were killed in an explosion and the death rate would have been in the HUNDREDS if all the dynamite had gone off. He eventually blue himself up near the new school. Human condition ? Look up the following to verify this terrible truth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_disaster
That bird doesn’t watch the news.
" War, war never changes. " (And how sad is it when you find veracity in a computer game tag line!)
Until wars stop being profitable, they will never stop.
School children dead is avoidable, were as combat deaths are not. I am afraid that we will see more school attacks in the future. I truly hope that I am wrong!
Wishful thinking, WW1 was called the “war to end all wars”. Though a book I read on the time between stated Neville Chamberlain’s reluctance to draw a line in the sand was reflective of a then-common attitude to avoid another brutal conflict.
John, I was thinking of a comment yesterday and today that’s worthy of your gift to us of “Nevermore!”. I caught the end of “Saving Private Ryan” today, and, once again, I was heartbroken when the elderly Private Ryan said to his wife “Tell me I’ve lived a good life; tell me I’m a good man.” Those who gave their lives gave us the opportunity to do the same. Perhaps the strongest, most touching thing on YouTube is the video accompanying John Williams’ “Hymn to the Fallen” (part of S.P.R’s soundtrack). Add up the number buried at the National Cemeteries shown; it’s a frightening number. And yet, that music fits so well.
