The War Prayer

Saint Pat at No Claim To Sainthood has posted Mark Twain's "The War Prayer". It's a shocking piece of writing, which is well worth reading or rereading from time to time. Twain makes his point brilliantly. Although this wasn't published during his lifetime, it has lived on. He was a very wise man.


  1. I first read that when I came of age during the first Gulf War. As my nephew turns 10 and I think of how long this clusterf*** may continue, it hits me doubly.

  2. Thanks for sending me to St. Pat's, Grandmère Mimi.

    Well worth the trip.

  3. PJ, you're welcome. I see that you now have a "real" blog. You can't say I didn't warn you.

    It's good; you should keep writing.
