No More War

As a Quaker, days like Memorial Day are difficult to process, what with all the jingoism and nationalism that tends to result.  We should not glorify war nor demonize those of other nationalities, races, or religions.  This morning Bill shared a Bible verse on facebook and I think it's an appropriate response:

They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.

~Isaiah 2:4
