I used to be in the Air Force and aside from a few moments in basic training during marches or physical training, I could not stand it. I joined for selfish reasons. I wanted to see the world and to get away from a bad situation. I did see some beautiful places, but the situation followed me.
I installed and maintained communication computer systems by day and went to school for me. I was a bad airman. I don’t know why they put up with me that long and even requested that I stay for a promotion. I always wanted out because I hate war. When I left, I was so caught up with inner conflict that I almost took my own life.
Men and women are not meant to fight. It is what happens when people are not smart enough to find a common ground. How was I supposed to continue in the Air Force, collecting their paychecks when I really wanted another way? I didn’t know that other ways existed. Still don’t. That is where this site comes in. If I share some information and prayer, maybe we can stop hurting each other.
What Smart People Say
War is what happens when language fails.
Wars are not paid for in wartime, the bill comes later.Benjamin Franklin
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.Nelson Mandela
