I got Nothing, But I have a Friend Who Does Have Plenty To Say To All Of Us Today

The blogger with the French name and who has just immigrated to France, has posted on an online magazine with a great piece about Verdun and WWI. So, without her permission, I give it to you here. Kim is the woman known to us as Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien.

Please go to her site today, and read this piece. It is far better than any of the crap I might give you today. I'm still nursing my many piddling problems. And really, there are days when you just don't have the goods to give. This is one of those days for me. But her post is worth reading for so many reasons. Trust me, have I ever given you bad advise? Well, maybe once. But not this time.

In the meantime, I will be thinking. And mostly about war. War and the crushing poverty and destruction it leaves in it's wake. Honor really should never be a word associated with war. There is so little that could be called honor when killing and blowing shit up is the mission.
