Today I remember those who died for peace: Jesus, Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., numerous members of workers', and socialist movements. The anonymous who die every day in factories and mines, not just our soldiers but the soldiers of the "enemy", many also poor and anonymous. Does Haliburton give $1. to the family of those who died so that they could have obscene profits? What about Exxon?
Let us pray for the day when we free ourselves from the tyranny of riches, and the folly of justified violence. When thankfulness and forgiveness will reign. And all life is equally sacred.
