Language, the Weapon of War

Here's a link to one of Kohleun's poems, A History of Domestic Violence. Again, I think it says a lot about where conflict comes from -- what fuels it. And what needs to change if we're ever to get anywhere on this long road to peace. The way we talk and think. Only then will it matter how we act. Only then can anything change.
The poem uses explicit language (the reason I'm not posting it here), but then, as I once told Megan, real life has content. So just be warned.
