But see there is this one thing.
I believe war is wrong.
Really, really wrong.
There is never an excuse for it wrong.
and I didn't say anything.
because, obviously, she doesn't feel that way, or she wouldn't be joining the army.
I went to school with her, and I know that she is a deeply committed Christian. My faith has lead me to believe there is no just war, while her equally Christian faith lead her to believe that there is such a thing.
Just as I don't want people pounding me over the head with Bible verses that I've already examined, I have to assume that she has thought about this, prayed about this, etc, and any convincing I try to do will just hurt.
But I wonder... should I tell her that I'm anti-war?
Should I tell her that I pray every day that this conflict will end?
Should I tell her that I cry every time I hear of anyone, American or not, dying or being horribly injured in this stupid war?
Or do I just silently add her to the list of people that I pray and cry for?
Oh Lord, Why do the nations rage?
