My beef: last night I caught part of the tV show Extreme Home makeover and they kept glorifying soldiers and war; saying how war vets and soldiers in the Iraq war are “heroes” and the like; imperlialist flag-waving,nationalism, and war mongering. It made me sick. To me a hero is NOT someone who invades and plunders a foreign nation, and who rapes, pillages, and kills innocent civilians. War should NOT be glorified and those who wage war should not be treated as “heroes”. Jesus was for peace and so must we be.To me a hero is someone who SAVES lives, and often at the risk of their own,and NOT someone who TAKES a life.Those who strive for *peace* are the REAL heroes!!
