gulf war
"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable an ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder." -- Albert Einstein

Sunday 9th March. Grace Service at St Mary's. Ashes theme picking up Strange old ritual I suppose, this business of splatting dirty muck on the forehead. Was moved by the service which took the form of communion. Adam's six degrees of separation was thought provoking on the subject of connections - lines drawn on paper to show the "small-world" connections between people. The weighing scales to represent the things that weigh us down and the things that lift us the setting right of the balance.
