(This is a story that must not ever happen)!
It was a beautiful, sunny day, like any other. Birds sang a happy chorus and baby birds chirped in their nests. A soft spring breeze ruffled the fur
of a tiny kitten as it chased a butterfly across a field of fragrant wild flowers. Magnolia trees and dogwoods were in bloom. A child rushed in for
supper and teased his sister at the table...then, it happened. A white flash of light...the boy cries his last tear as he wonders, "Why"? A soldier
is sprawled in a meadow and swears he's smelling his moms fresh baked apple pie before he leaves this world. His brother in arms thinks of his wife
and child and wishes he could hold them one more time...then, the light of life flickers in his eyes and all fades to black.
An old woman somewhere hugs a picture of her long deceased husband as she waits for the prevailing winds to deliver the nucl*ar winter. Old Glory is
charred and tattered on the ground in front of the Old Soldiers Home. They died sick and tired and alone. The rockets red glare, the b*mbs bursting in
air...all for what? If life is a game, then war is a lose, lose situation for all concerned. There will be no "prize", no brass ring! Perhaps all of
the above was just a bad dream in the mind of some entity or a bad thought in the minds eye of someone/something. Let us hope and pray that is all it
is or ever will be. Peace on earth, good will toward men should be words to live by, not just something in a song at Christmas. Blessings to us all
