people shouldnt kill people.

From the mouths of babes,when I was about 4, around 1970, I remember seeing for the first time images of the Vietnam war. My first thought was someone should tell these guys, people shouldnt kill people. I will never forget thinking that , at that moment. I believe that still to be true,someone should tell those guys people shouldnt kill people. As an adult, thinking back,I t believed if someone were to get hurt,then another person would do their best to help and protect the injured,and to intentially inflict harm was unimaginable. Just a thought Ive carried, peace!
