Happy day, Veterans!
Today I remember the people sitting around tables at the end of every war. I remember the beginnings of peace. I remember the efforts of those working to maintain peace. Instead of remembering the fighting and the death that grew out of differences, I am trying to think of the years people around the world have lived without war.Think of the years of peace, the years nobody died, the years no couples said what could turn out to be their last goodbye, the years there were no threats, the years people lived, the years children grew, the years with peace.
And then and only then will I remember there is an alternative I do not want.
