Your Slice of Zen for the Day
"I can't tell you anything you don't know. We live in the trenches out there, we fight, we try not to be killed, and sometimes we are. That's all. I heard you in here, reciting the same old stuff. Making more iron men, making more heroes. You still think it's beautiful and sweet to die for your country, don't you? We used to think you knew. The first bombardment taught us better. It's dirty and painful to die for your country. When it comes to dying for your country, it's better not to die at all."
