I am grateful for the concept of a peace-keeper.
I wish that we no longer needed to consider soldiers necessary.
When we pray for peace on earth, and even write it on many Christmas cards, do we ever think how hard it would actually be? Assuming that those who aren't Christians also want the same thing, it is a great intellectual exercise.
In the meantime, thank you to all who have served their countries believing that their sacrifice would be for the greater good.
When we consider a global economy, do we consider a global identity? That the Chinese and South Africans and Brazilians (to pick any cultures out of my hat) could all just be humans?
