A Life Too Ordinary
When Human Wisdom Fails
19 Mar 2003
"There is no such thing as inevitable war. When war comes it will be from failure of human wisdom."
And so it begins. The trumpets are blaring, the war-drums are sounding. Will it all be worth it in the end? When homes are destroyed, fields made barren, valleys laid to waste, and the dead are lying in the streets, when blood reddens the pavements and dries on the bricks, when anger and hatred and breath-choking despair are all thats left of a people. When the future seems to distant to be wothwhile, when there is no dignity, no hope to cling on to. When another generation grows up fattened on rage and humiliation and hate. Will it all have been worth it? When does bigotry become religious conviction? When does national interest become synonymous with war mongering? What have we all been doing for so long? How did we get to this point? Ordinary humans are no longer applicable. Our future is in the hands of generals and men who call themselves Men of God. We have failed Him.
God forgive us all.
