Tonight I watched “Waltz With Bashir”. For the first time, I think in my entire life, my heart aches for innocent people, and for those who, in the name of God or country or retribution or revenge, kill people who hold human beliefs the same as theirs, but on the opposite side of conflict. It saddens me. All my life I have felt deep anguish at the thought of a hurt or lost animal. This time the animal is human. It saddens me equally, I think more. We are human. We have intellect. We have compassion. We love. We harm.
How can that be?
