We can talk about the reality of war, having never been in the position of wondering if the family we wake with will be the same we lay down with at night. We can talk about what’s right or wrong, never being the ones who necessarily have to choose each day. We can hold up or castigate one side or the other, knowing nothing of the human costs of our decisions. We can decide to destroy human life, and then watch it happen from the comfort of 1,000’s of miles of distance. We can. And we will. For the correct reasons, or not.

Let’s try to remember that but for the grace of God (or luck of the draw if you prefer), it could be us. There is a real cost. And it’s often a large percentage of that human cost that ends up being completely innocent. Completely. Innocent.
