Letter — The Kingdom and the Power

Another season of Holy Days has come and gone and I think of Hamlet and Mark Kaminsky’s “The Road from Hiroshima” and how and what we pray. So I say … To Be …

Forgive us our Trespasses, The Hiroshima atomic blast brought death or injury to more than 160,000 people.

Lead us not into Temptation, Allied incendiary bombs spread through Dresden and Tokyo and left 150,000 dead.

Deliver us from Evil, in 20th Century wars 62 million civilians have perished, nearly 20 million more than the 43 million military personnel killed.

The Kingdom and the Power, America exports more weapons than all other nations combined.

And the Glory, In the Persian Gulf was 35,000 Iraqi citizens were killed.

Forever, The Bush administration has revised its Nuclear Posture Review to give us more flexible nuclear strike capabilities.

…..or not To Be?
