Dona Nobis Pacem
The other day at a spinning gathering, a friend noted that today we would celebrate Armistice Day, then corrected herself to say Veteran's Day.
I knew what she meant, although I was not born until well after Armistice Day. My parents used the moniker, and to them, as well as to my spinning friend, it once truly meant the end of war. It turned out to be only the end of their war. We have had several wars, *armed conflicts*, *military actions* and the like since then.
Somehow, we can't seem to get to Peace. I truly think Peace is what we all want. The way to get there is the crux: can we bomb our way to Peace? It is not a simple question, by any means, but I know my answer.
