Remembering the spiritual and physical devastations of war keep me vigilant. We live in a world that sees unimaginable horror and too often we are silenced by it. Although fear can be deadly, like a malot it can cause liberty to reverberate as a drum. We must speak up when we see wrong. Yet we should not rush to judgments, especially in circumstances we were uninvolved. Should we do the alternative, there are big risks. We lose the good feelings of life and risk as a society, forgetting the great losses that can come to all nations and sides in war. This is evidenced by the wounded soldiers who returned from the regional and global conflagrations of the 1940s and today. We can all do better.
