The United States of America
One nation among many in God's world


So we’re sending America's youth off to war with Iraq. There’s much I could say, but the words of a far greater American come to mind - those of Mark Twain, "The War Prayer": …It was a time of great and exalting excitement. The country was up in arms,.

.".O Lord.., help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire;..help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst..blast their hopes, blight their lives ..stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet!..Amen. (After a pause.) "Ye have prayed it; if ye still desire it, speak! The messenger of the Most High waits!" …It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said.
Writen upon the onset of the Philippine-American War of 1899-1902, which Twain opposed.
