An Important Lesson




You, my parents, taught me that it was wrong to kill . . . except in war.

You, my church, taught me that it was wrong to kill . . . except in war.

You, my teachers, taught me that it was wrong to kill . . . except in war.

You, my government, taught me that it was wrong to kill . . . except in war.

Then you sent me to war

And when I had no choice . . . except to kill,

Then you told me I was wrong!

And now I will tell you . . . my parents.

. . . my church.

. . . my teachers.

. . . my government.

It is not wrong to kill . . . except in war.

It is wrong to kill period!

And this you have to learn . . .

Just as I had to!
