While at the doctor's office, I came across this quote in an out-of-date magazine. It's from a man named Lazare Ponticelli, who died recently at the age of 110. He was believed to be the last living French veteran of World War I:
You shoot at men who are fathers. War is completely stupid.
It seems to me that people who have been through a war are seldom in favor of having another one. What do you think that should tell us?
