War- Man’s Coming of Age rite

War is terrible and that is all it is. A hideous way to
kill off young men and torture them. A coming of age I guess.
Hello boys, welcome to what it is to be a man. Now pick up a rifle
and shoot another young man like yourself. Feel what it is like to
be the cause of life draining from another, make some friends there
and watch them die and lose limbs in agonizing ways.
Also don’t forget, that the bullets, the fear, just may follow you
everyday for the rest of your life. And everyone will wonder why
you aren’t normal. Just what is the matter, why can’t you snap out
of it and live life the way everyone else is? One cheeseburger and
movie at a time?
