In my children's primary school's weekly newsletter today, this:
"This morning our grade 5/6 students visited the Shrine of Remembrance to join thousands of others for the annual Remembrance Day service. As part of the service, B______ and B__________ , laid a special wreath made by the 5/6 students on the steps of the shrine."
Here's a new's article about the service.
I see I shall have to keep my eyes and ears wide open, if I'm to have any chance of my children growing up not believing the myth of redemptive violence. I think I shall have to do some exposure to MLK and Ghandi.
Tonight I shall ask them "Why do people go to war?" then I shall examine, with them, their answers. =)
What do you think--why do people go to war?
