They Had NamesSubmitted by joeneesima on Wed, 03/21/2012 - 09:26
But the victims became a footnote, an anonymous footnote. Just the number 16. No one bothered to ask their ages, their hobbies, their aspirations. Worst of all, no one bothered to ask their names.
...nine of them were children, three were women.

Real people with families and lives...not evil entities killed in a video game.
When we invade countries and bomb their cities...who pays the biggest price? And I hear over and over, "At least they [the invasions] are keeping us safe."
16 There are six things which the LORD hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that run rapidly to evil,
19 A false witness who utters lies,
And one who spreads strife among brothers.
