Children? You mean someone is killing children? Go!
That line is from Czech writer, Karel Čapek’s 1938 play, Mother. I first heard it as a radio drama when I was in high school.
Dolores, a mother who lost her husband and four sons to war, finally relents and allows her last remaining son to enlist.
Someone is killing children. In every corner of the world, every minute of every day, a child is harmed at the hand of one of us, sensible, grown up Mothers and Fathers.
So where do I go, what do I do?
Wouldn’t it be insane for me to support people in bringing more children into the world and not encourage peace activism?
