“In World War II, good American boys who wouldn’t have kicked a cat flew bombers that set cities filled with innocent German children on fire. German boys, who were raised to be kind and decent, participated in the atrocities of the Holocaust. How is it that normally decent people who are raised to be kind and respectful of others can commit acts of horrible violence during wars? How do they put aside their normal reluctance to hurt others and make the decision to shoot or bomb not only enemy combatants but civilians including women and children?”

“My friend died last night. I found him early this morning.
Todd Matthew Williams was just 51. He suffered from congestive heart failure—at least that’s what we guessed. Despite a life of work—six years in the US Army, several years teaching Native American children on a reservation in South Dakota, several years working for a nonprofit in Albuquerque, driving truck in Portland—Todd had no health insurance. He never went to the doctor and so he died. Young.”
