No Final Resting Place

The pilot of the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the world's first nuclear bomb passed away at the age of 92. Paul Tibbets Jr. requested no funeral or headstone, fearing that either would provide his critics with a place to protest. Apparently we don't have the freedom to rest peacefully. Bless Mr. Tibbets and others doing their duty as part of the war machine, mobilized by leaders unable to solve their differences peacefully. Bless us all as our American President talks about World War III.
