Images of War

"War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children." President Jimmy Carter

It's Memorial Day. A time to remember soldiers killed in battle. As if we could ever forget them.

Tragically, in today's world anyone with a cause, a grudge and a bomb can become a combatant. And turn ordinary citizens into victims of war.

We'll see many flag draped scenes of heroic military men and women today. Which is as it should be.

I want to be sure we keep the painful price of war front and center. Soldiers and citizens, victims all, deserve our honor, our prayers.
