Why War?


In commemoration of America's Memorial Day, it seems appropriate...yet again...to ask WHY?

This is a picture I took last summer in Northern Luxembourg of a war poster at the Clervaux Castle
war museum on the Battle of the Bulge.  I immediately thought of Memorial Day when I saw it.

As you celebrate this festive holiday, please don't forget to ask WHY?

That's what my post is about at Vision and Verb today:  Why War?

  1. Yes, Boots, Why? The question is important, even while we sing the praises of those who are willing to lay down their lives for us. If senators' sons and daughters had to immediately go to battle, would they vote for war?

    1. It's a double-edged sword, Ruthie. Since we've aleays had wars and rumors of wars, one wonders if anything else is possible? But yes, if "they" had to suffer like the rest of the world, maybe things would change? Will we ever know? (sigh)
