"Hating people because of their color is wrong. 
And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. 
It's just plain wrong."

...will we ever learn?

Soon, another Memorial Day will have come and gone, with its obligatory pomp, ceremonious pride, meaningless platitudes and empty promises; promises that can never be kept; as long as so-called "civilization" continues to be what it is and has always been.    

History suggests that, although "Memorial Day" came into common use, beginning in the early 1880s, the term "Decoration Day" had also been used to denote the "celebration", for more than a century.  

By way of something called the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968,  Memorial Day was officially moved, date notwithstanding, from its traditional observance on May 30th, to the last Monday in May, each year. .  

Best estimates suggest  that 1.1 million Americans have died at arms (that's 1.1 million & counting), between the Revolutionary War and the so-called, "War on Terror"; by far our longest and most unforgivable war, do date.  . 

One-point-one-million dead Americans! 

And so many of them, mere children; dying before they'd had a chance to really live... 

Will the carnage ever end? 
Will we ever learn?   

If the "book-of-books" is true, there will always  be "wars and rumors of wars"; the blood from which will drench untold killing fields, for as long as mankind is allowed to draw breath on this planet... 

Why can 't we end it; this "sin-of-sins"?  
Why can't we learn? 
Why must it be this way?

... one step at a time

Over the years I've learned that the goals we set for ourselves aren't nearly as important as the steps we take to achieve them. 

Pop's here...
