Memorial Day: Let's Talk War & Soldiers

It is common now for many Americans to say "Thank You for your Service" when they meet or even just encounter a person in Military Service. When I hear someone is in the military, I always want to say,  " Oh I am so sorry". I hate war and know it twists and damages even the conquering forces. How do you react when you meet a soldier? Does the knee jerk or even the genuine, "Thank You" help keep our endless wars going? Does  support of the individual soldiers lead to  unquestioning support of the military and the silence of the Anti- War movement ?  Or is it only what they are due, no matter how you feel about war.

Immigrants who’ve lived in the United States for years, are being detained and deported at unprecedented rates. Thousands languish in detention centers—often torn from their families—for months or even years. Deportees are returned to violent Central American nations or unceremoniously dropped off in dangerous Mexican border towns. Despite the dangers of the desert crossing, many immigrants will slip across the border again, stopping at nothing to get home to their children.

Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. The group is organizing with other secular and faith-based groups "Camp Hope: Countdown to Change" in Chicago, four blocks from Obama's residence there. The camp begins on New Year's Day and continues to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Kelly says "Large lobbying groups, including some of the large corporations, are pushing Obama around the clock to preserve the status quo, wage war and provide for unbridled greed. What we're asking is that the money spent on the military be spent instead on soluble problems such as lack of healthcare."

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
