“I have told my sons that they are not under any circumstances to take part in massacres, and that the news of massacres of enemies is not to fill them with satisfaction or glee.” Pg 19 Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughter House -Five, The Children’s Crusade, A Duty-Dance with Death.
Reading out loud the first chapter… to an innocent person of 40 something, I think upon my duty in life. Simple it is a life that is to honor and house a new children’s crusade. Fold laundry, cleaning toilets and spying around corners; I do for them. Books, CD’s and games galore fill this woman’s crusade. OK Mary O’Hare?
The Meaning of life…
“From the cupola of the Church of Our Lady, I saw the sad ruins among the beautiful city buildings; the church sexton praised the architect for having built the bomb proof church and cupola. Then the sacristan, musing about the ruins that lay all around us, said critically, using few words: ‘The devil has done this!’ ” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Pg. 18 SHF
