U.S. Marine drill seargent says "soldier, why did you join the Marines?"

Then recruit Nathan Harris replies "I want to kill people."

U.S. Marine drill seargent - "You've come to the right place."

These are Nathans' words from the documentary - Hell and Back Again, - and here lies the reality...

  • What do we do with people who desire to kill?

There is a funny/ironic scene in this documentary, where Sgt. Nathan Harris comes home after being shot, decides he needs to go to Walmart and purchase the newest copy of Call of Duty, the video game.

We are raising our kids for fighting and war.

I asked my neaphew while he was playing one of these games and after he said "he wanted to be in the military," "why he wanted to do that?" and his repy "I have to kill them, before they kill me."

There are only two kinds of people in this world, those who understand and those who have yet to understand.

And so I say on this memorial weekend, thanks, thanks to all the Soldiers of Fortune, for this World of Warcraft. May you be changed by this understanding.

Call of Duty is an awesome game. I prefer Zombie mode though.
