Grieving angel

"When people decry civilian deaths caused by the U.S government, they're aiding propaganda efforts. In sharp contrast, when civilian deaths are caused by bombers who hate America, the perpetrators are evil and those deaths are tragedies. When they put bombs in cars and kill people, they're uncivilized killers. When we put bombs on missiles and kill people, we're upholding civilized values. When they kill, they're terrorists. When we kill, we're striking against terror".  Norman Solomon

“Did you say it? Did you mean it?
Did you lay it on the line? Did you make it count?
Did you look ‘em in the eye and did they feel it?
Did you say it in time? Did you say it out loud?
’cause if you did hon, than you’ve lived some.
That feelin’ inside, that’s called ‘satisfied.’”
~ Jewel (“Satisfied” on Sweet & Wild)
