WHY WAR CREATES
not only ‘strange bedfellows’ but folks who are just a little bit … different … and who are often withdrawn, deeply introspective, given to outbursts for provocations seen as minor and who even often dwell in a world apart from the rest of us.
WHAT SURPRISES ME
is how so very many normal folks can effectively ‘take it in their stride’ and simply get on with life. Do they ever ‘turn to God’? Apparently, I’m told, some do—there is a saying beloved of Goddists that “There are no atheists in foxholes”.
Thank God, then, for foxholes, no?*
So warfare is just one of God’s cute little ‘teaching aids’ (engineered by Him some fourteen thousand million years ago before He omnisciently created the universe)—and so all of us ungrateful bastards should be thankful for His methods of trying to draw us into His holy Kingdom?
Rather than me spending the rest of the day bleating, try visiting this link—
—for the source of this wee quote:
“Returned servicemen didn’t want to talk about war.
“It was seen as taboo. They bottled it up because they weren’t able to talk about the things they had seen and wanted it to be in the past.”
Partly right, even.
But to talk about something requires a common language. So now go hug a veteran … and be careful not to get bitten.
* Who else? (Trick question—be careful here.)
