• Amen. Far more civilians die in war than soldiers.

    We’d do well to remember that.

  • I have always liked this one.

    With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

  • That’s a good thought. I always feel more for the civilians, most of whom never signed up for whatever war is being fought or at worst were manipulated into it by warmongering politicians.

  • Jesus, that was an awful war.

    I took a class in grad school, the literature of WWI, and it was pretty much the most depressing semester of my life.

    Sometimes, humans really suck. At least it ended, after the next war, anyway.
