I was thinking of a high school buddy who commanded U.S. peacemakers in Lebanon, was kidnapped and executed. I've told the story before. I shall tell it again soon.

 In the meantime, here is a reminder:

Being a peacemaker is not the same as being a pacifist.

Patrick Henry put it this way:

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

There can be no Peace unless there is also Justice.
