reality of it
I don't know that any of those living on American soil (having not been in a war personally) truly know the reality of it...9-11 was the most recent taste of what war is like. Unfortunately, John, this process has been going on since the beginning of time....and as much as peace would be wonderful, it can't ever eliminate war. The word "enemies" and "evil". If we were to do away with these concepts...then, we would be in real trouble because there are those in the world who truly are enemies to our freedom and whose hearts are viciously full of evil.
