With medical advances in the last several years, it's reported that cancer is taking fewer and fewer victims all the time. That's a very good thing! It's taken a lot of research and billions of dollars to accomplish. My father died from cancer as well as several other people I knew.
On a weekly basis one or more of my friends on Facebook will post something about hating cancer, and the loved ones they've lost. Occasionally, I'll repost what they've posted, because they often ask you to, and I don't want to hurt their feelings by not doing so.
Last night, I watched a film titled "War Horse", which although it was pretty predictable, was still good. In watching I tapped into how much I hate war, especially the killing of innocent people. Not sure why it infuriates me so, but it absolutely does!
It's hard for me to "hate" cancer. It's a part of the nature of being human. We are prone to disease, and when we get sick, we do what we can to get well again. But what about war? It's an extremely UN-natural thing for humans to build and possess weapons that will take the lives of others. I'm 100% convinced of this. Yet, we do little to prevent war. We do even less to end war. And I'm STILL waiting to see a post on Facebook that says; "I HATE WAR!! If you do too, please repost for 1 hour on your timeline. I know some of my friends will do this".
