Do You Have Empathy… for Conservatives?

The below was re-posted from AlterNet.

Why I seek peace?

As a missionary in South Korea (1963-1966) I was recruited by the USAF as an auxiliary civilian chaplain.I was troubled by some of the things I saw and was told by active military, and by the progress of the VN action.The situation was grim and getting worse.
