Meditation for Lent

So, I caught the end of Bill Moyer's Journal last night. It was his discussion with Lori Grinker about the ravages of war. I simply recommend it to you, especially the photographs. As you look at them, remind yourself that "violence is down in Iraq," and how that's supposed to be a good thing.

Then think about the whole calculus of "good" and "bad" that we use so freely, how easily we elide the individuals from such discussions by focussing on the "overall," the "big picture." It's a good Lenten meditation.
