Life-Giving Words, Bullets and Hollywood

After reading the devotions for the day
by a Franciscan monk and a deceased,
pacifist, street priest and some thought-

ful words from a Quaker commenting on
Thomas Merton, he walked past the T.V.
and caught a smattering of a conversa-

tion on a Sunday talk show about the
new Hollywood war movie featuring the
life of a sniper credited with more kills

than any other sniper in Iraq only to be
killed by an assassin at a shooting range
back home, ironically. He thought to him-

self, Hollywood just wouldn’t make a movie
about any of the peace-loving folk whose
words enriched his life on a Sunday morning.
