Philosophical ramblings after a long night of deep internal monologues
I recommend listening to Alan Watts rather than to my drivel

from the CBC archieves...
“Some must die so that others may live.? Winston Churchill.
By 2002, about 116,780 Canadians have died in war and peacekeeping missions around the world. Remembrance Day honours the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
In this 1944 CBC Radio clip, war correspondent Matthew Halton evokes the “dead and the damned battalions,? reflects that “there’ll be mad dogs again in the future,? and urges listeners “this time, let’s not break faith.?

Lest we forgot.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
— John McCrae

We have a lot of the same thoughts...I have no drive either because I don\'t have much of a conception when it comes to the future...I still have trouble conceiving what I will do/ who I will be in this future everyone talks about. What you said is almost totally true...
