First of all, to all the men and women who have sacrificed for our country, I thank you. I am a pacifist but you have given much to America. Second of all, thank you to all of the spouses, parents, and friends of a soldier who went away to fight in a war. I hope they came home whole and well. If your military person did not, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have lost. It isn’t enough, but I hurt for all the men, women and families and friends who have an empty spot in their hearts. Be proud of them. I am just sorry that the human species feels a continuing and constant need to be violent. War doesn’t solve anything. May all of America’s sons and daughters who have passed, rest in peace.
Recently, Sir Patrick Stewart was in Texas doing a press conference, and a woman asked him a question. His answer is a revealing look at both Domestic Violence and PTSD in soldiers returning from the war front.
The ultimate truth is that violence and war solve nothing. They actually intensify what is wrong in the world.
REST IN PEACE
