Hope. Despair. Peace. War.

Hope. Despair. Peace. War. We say they mean something to us, but do they? We become outraged as we watch a helpless puppy being thrown off of a cliff in Iraq. We scream injustice and demand punishment. Yet, how many thousands of Iraqi children do we brush off as collateral damage? What do we do? NOTHING!

How can we say we are free when we have to keep our mouths shut out of fear of our government?

How can we say we “fight for liberty” when we sacrifice our own freedoms to do so?
