Pt1: What do you think/feel/know about war?
My 5min. response -
I try not to think about war, but I listen to NPR too often not to think about it.I like people like the guy portrayed in the movie "Machine Gun Preacher". When I think about war, I think about saving children.
My 15min. response -
The first image shows a memorial with a quote telling us how to end wars. However, I think it's too simple and clear for us to pull it off.
The second image shows a memorial with two blank sides. It is depressing because it stands as a blank slate waiting to be filled with names of those who will lose their lives in future wars. These blank slates accompany to sides with names of soldiers, one each dedicated to our U.S. war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
War sucks. Now I imagine that if we save all the children from war, we will also save all the people and will not have to use the two blank sides of this memorial.
