National Defense

Weapons will not save us.
Every kill puts a hole
in the fabric of life.

Armies will not preserve us.
Every victory in battle
comes at a higher cost.

Power will not secure us.
Every bended knee
recruits another adversary.

The best defense is compassion.
The best fortress is tolerance. 
The best protection is community.
