Remembrance Day

Mankind must put an end to war – or war will put an end to mankind. –John F. Kennedy

What the hell do we keep on fighting for?
We must know by now there is no just war! –LLF

We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other’s children. –Jimmy Carter

I can not believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war, and no one will win the next war. –Eleanor Roosevelt

Well, if we fix it so you can’t make no money on war,
We’ll all forget what we was killing folks for. –Woody Guthrie

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. –Jimi Hendrix

All true enough, but it’s not easy to see how we will ever overcome that love of power, much less fix it so no one can make money on war, or gain other things we see as equally desirable. If we want to end war and stuff, we know we’ve gotta sing loud. And work like hell. And never stop. Because the damned warmongers never stop. – LLF

About l. l. frederick

I'm pretty ordinary, so I find any number of things in the world interesting, among them: books, music, flowers, food, social justice, politics and (sometimes!) people. As for my writing, I've decided that I can be subtle and tasteful when our only problems are esthetic ones. Or when I'm dead, whichever comes first. In the meantime, read at your own risk.
