We Call it...War





They go away
These dear dads
Leaving behind
Little girls with golden curls
And blue-eyed freckled lads
To fight
Other dear dads
Who leave behind
Little girls with golden curls
And blue-eyed freckled lads
We call it war

Tonight we (myself, Matt, Victoria and her friend) watched the movie
The Littlest Rebel (Shirley Temple)

‘But how does that help?’ they ask me as they watch soldiers plunder and kill.
‘Mom, how does killing people make things better?
Mom, how can being so mean bring peace?
Mom, why do we have war?
Mom, is war sin?
