Presented at PUUF on Memoral Day 2004 as part of a service called "Remebering War, Hoping for Peace"

I want to talk about guilt:

In the Gulf War, I blamed the killing on my country: How could my government, my people, send me over here and order me to do this?

Now that I'm back here, I'm a part of that country. The finger of guilt has a way of traveling in large circles and returning to point back at the source. Am I guilty?

In Mark Twain's War Prayer, he points out that with each persons prayer there is also the unspoken prayer. The unthinking prayer. "If you pray for the blessing of rain upon your crop which needs it, by that act you are possibly praying for a curse upon some neighbor's crop which may not need rain and can be injured by it. " (copies outside, please read it)

Is Bush guilty? Is the "Military / Industrial" complex to blame? Am I at fault. Is there anything I could do?

Yes, our president is guilty. Our military is guilty. Our industry is guilty. We are guilty. I am guilty. Hey, I like bananas.

"It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said. "
