Civil War Leading The Headlines

In The News

“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.” 
― Howard Zinn

On This Day

April 12, 1861

"Americans think of themselves as a peace-loving people, and we certainly don’t regard our country as a “warrior nation” or “garrison state.” Teddy Roosevelt was probably the last U.S. president who seemed to view war as an activity to be welcomed (he once remarked that “A just war is in the long run far better for a man’s soul than the most prosperous peace”), and subsequent presidents always portray themselves as going to war with great reluctance, and only as a last resort." 🌐

In Closing

The Bible teaches, "Surely you need guidance to wage war, and victory is won through many advisers" (Prov. 24:6). I pray God grant us wisdom during these times, and pray for the day when we have to study war no more.
