I Am Lonely For War

I think that too many people these days are thinking in terms of good and bad...

They need a war to remind them that things are not black and white... in war is where you learn the stuff that people are made of...

It increases empathy amongst people and kinship. Kids these days don't know true fear or stress...

I think there are other ways for our kids to learn about stress and fear......Personally, I'm against war when at all possible...all other options should be considered first......Children can be encouraged to help others.....to let them see the difficulty of others around the world....I am from a somewhat poor area in Canada....Each year I bring my kids with me....to visit...and, they see how the other half live....I think now that they're older a working vacation would be an eye opener for them.....So many people lack even the basic necessities of life........Please, no more war....let countries be separtate, different....no offense intended....I have several young relatives in active military service...I respect them immensely...but, I wish there was a better way for them to give back....How about the government sending more young people in the Peace Corps or something like that?

Agreed.
