In Rememberance of Innocent Suffering
I attended the Hiroshima remembrance this Sunday, added to that is a remembrance of all the children lost after Desert Storm.

In an old Christian church converted into an art studio was now set in Buddhist formality with pictures of dead and deformed children hung upon the walls.

I wonder - why do the innocent suffer and die indiscriminently? I feel a little anger at a God I believe in, and hope for an answer that I cannot now understand - a justice in a future I cannot see.

Perhaps, to put it in terms of your religion, Free Will.

Some human beings will always seek power over their fellow humans. A natural emotion I guess, some will transfer their need for control to pets, thie enviroments, websites, etc, if they cannot gain control of their nieghbors.

That Free Will allows a person to convince themselves of a translation of their scriptures, for example, that seeminlgy proof their right to impose their will, to mpose their religion onto others, to cause war, death.

Manifest Destiny and Divine Providence are two such read-ins that the US has utilized, first to push our borders to the west coast, later to influence a religious minority to take over the country almost completly, and even later to spread our form of democracy into an unexpecting and unwilling world.

Innocents die, simply because they are innocents, caught within the meat grinder of aggressive politics and power plays.

I can understand the machine that killed and punished these children, what I can't understand is "why these children?"

Some people like to believe we are spreading Democracy or Christianity and thus justifying war - Cheney and many like him would like you to believe it also everytime they go to the bank.

What they hope to spread is Capitalism, and it isn't to help feed the hungry either.
