November 11, 2013: The Myth of War

Veteran's Day.

With 22 veterans committing suicide each day.
63,000 homeless every night.
Countless female soldiers enduring rape every day.
And the death.
All the death.
Death in moments of anxiety and regret and naïveté and confusion.
Death of "us".
Death of "them".
The myth of war.
Myths that serve old men seeking the fountain of youth through illegitimate authority. Killing off the young men so as to leave the young women vulnerable for harvest.

The story is not new.
The story is too old.
The story hasn't always had this poorly constructed plot line.
The story will change.
Must change.
