Hope, anyone?

After hearing how military bloggers are being silenced and watching a horrible reminder of the cost of war over at Crooks and Liars I needed another perspective. Wendell Berry rarely lets me down.

February 2, 1968

In the dark of the moon, in flying snow, in the dead of winter,
war spreading, families dying, the world in danger,
I walk the rocky hillside, sowing clover.
