I am lying here nursing my 7 month old daughter. I am a white American sobbing at the horror so many people live every day. My child is blissful in her ignorance of the world and I rue the day that she sees the truth. As a child, the first doll I picked for myself was a black baby with eyes that opened and closed; I still have her. Children are taught to hate by their parents, religion, and society. This is why I will not be subjecting my daughter to any religion, but will teach her empathy, cause and effect, and encourage her to find her own spirituality before looking to any blood stained dogma for guidance.
War is a failure of men, religion and culture.
