"It is not a good fancy" said the lama. "What profit to kill men?"
(and then he is answered):
"Very little--- as I know; but if evil men were not now and then slain it would not be a good world for weaponless dreamers. I do not speak without knowledge who have seen the land from Delhi south awash with blood."
from Kim, by Rudyard Kipling
and that's a Tibetan Lama, not a furry llama, just to head you off at the pass.
On this Memorial Day weekend, may we weaponless dreamers remember those who fought that we may be so...
