Future Desperation

While listening to a recent report on the wars being fought overseas, this thought worked itself out in my head:

The decision to go to war is one made by
desperate men who are out of good ideas.

The next day, I told a friend how I was not ruling out spanking as a future form of discipline for Violet, and the same thought about war popped into my head, followed by the realization that the words "go to war" could be replaced with "spank a child."

  1. Well said. Isn't it cool when thoughts seemingly come together without plan?

  2. It is SO cool - I wish that it would happen more often!
