War, always with Us, Just Gets Worse

War shapes our lives, sometimes encouraging violence, verbal and physical. Outside war zones, ordinary citizens find ourselves drawn into taking sides. How can we create a better future for our children, ourselves, even for those we don’t know?

All Civilian Lives Matter Says Military Ethicist

Directly targeting civilians or exposing them to disproportionate harm in war is wrong for the same reasons that it is wrong to kill or harm innocent people in peacetime. People who pose no threat to others deserve respect and protection from violence regardless of their nationality or group identity. To violate that respect in war is not only a war crime but a moral crime.

God has done a great job. He/She/It has made a wonderful world beyond our comprehension. Creation is so vast and complex that everything imaginable is possible and yet God has given it a structure that has allowed for predictability within this realm. God has given us just enough cognizance and wherewithal to cope with our surroundings, but not enough for us to get cocky about it! 

It is a wonderful existence that we share, and we each experience it alone. I am in awe of the achievements of this omnipresent/omnipotent being and I give it my whole-hearted approval. Interestingly enough I suspect that my approval is probably not significant to even warrant recognition by the aforementioned ubiquitous being of superlative power, but I have granted it nonetheless. I am thoroughly impressed. If this existence was a drawing created by God I would put it on the cosmic fridge and stick a gold star on its margins. I approve.
