I am not on Facebook but Miriam is and the following picture was posted on the public stream.
Every one of these weapons has but one purpose - to kill other humans. To post this at any time is obscene, with young children holding lethal weapons, but especially to use the image as a Christmas card, a time to celebrate peace and goodwill towards your fellow human travellers on this earth, is especially appalling.
And this in the immediate aftermath of yet another mass killing in the US.
It truly boggles the mind; it is beyond understanding. Imagine the good that could have been done for humanity with the money spend on those weapons.
Three years ago, on Christmas Day 2012 I posted this: http://www.travelswithbirds.blogspot.ca/2012/12/adecision-not-taken-lightly-ifirst.html
I have not wavered in that decision, nor will I. Surely, sooner or later something has to change in that society which now has more than one mass killing a week, but given the door that has been slammed shut whenever Barak Obama has tried, don't hold your breath waiting.
