Once one’s dead, one’s life options are pretty limited. One’s body can be counted, but one can no longer count. One can no longer read or write, need health care or contribute to the economy.
Just in case the current electoral activities in the US has made anyone forget what’s happening in the world, there’s a reminder at the right. Our US politicians seem to have less to say about peace now than they did a few months ago. The candidates seem to be spending more time on health care, economic stimuli, and etc. It’s not that I think those are unimportant issues, but my government is killing people and creating environments that sustain—if not support—killing people. Along the way, my government is putting my country-folk in harm’s way, making them vulnerable, and bringing home many who have been maimed.
On whom can we count to stop this?
