What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!!!!! wasn't there a song that had this title in the 60 or 70"s? Unfortunately war is needed, ironic that it contributes to Peace in the world, unfortunately the reason's for war is greed, power, religion,oil but mostly the belief's of people. The people who are willing to die for what they believe in, most who are called to fight because they are told to, not really ever knowing WHY they are willing to die, only that their Commander in Chief has issued the few words: We are at war.
As a mother I agree what is war good for? Absolutely nothing-as a citizen of the Untied States, I can understand. But the understanding is becoming weaker by the day. Too many people in higher ranks, our government is I believe not doing enough to pull out our troops. Too many people are dying.War can be traced back to the Indo-European root *wers-, "to confuse, mix up." In the Germanic family of the Indo-European languages, this root gave rise to several words having to do with confusion or mixture of various kin.
you have me convinced-war = confusion. I come from a military Family,who my Mom can date us back to the American Revolution. When our Men and women come back from war, as generations before us, it doesn't end there. They have to deal with not only the physical deficits they may have encountered but the mental deficits as well. One of my Son's will never have that fun, carefree look anymore thanks to the destruction he had to see "over their". Unfortunately it doesn't stop with him, it spreads to all around him who love him, his Family.
I pray that all the men and women return safely from any and all wars, and the people who don't,I not only thank you, but your Family as well for enduring/supporting and loving that man you sent off to war.
I just don't know what to say anymore. I feel and sense what my Son saw the other day has changed him-again- so please God, bring Michael home with that "smirk" he so often had, but most important God, please bring my child home safe and sound. Thank you
