The cost of abandonment in war lives on from generation to generation. Each time we go to war we will always create more unresolved abandonment issues then we resolve. War is not the answer!

 

  • It cost us money to address social and economic issues in or out of our own country.
  • It cost us the lives that are lost and in the cost of the lives of the children, spouses, parents, friends, and companies that lost them.
  • It cost us in the contributions these individuals had yet had the opportunity to contribute to the world.
  • It cost us in the lives of the people we killed.
  • It cost us our safety from people who now have an enhanced reason and desire to kill.
  • It cost us our ethics.
  • It cost us in the lost of lives, livelihoods, and our physical, emotional, and mental health.
  • It cost us to experience an increase in the break-up of our families, societies, and civilizations.
  • It cost us conflict with our belief in God.
  • It cost us conflict in our view of the good in humankind.
  • It cost us in the fighting and disagreement within our own nation.
  • It cost us in our ability to serve and assist individuals and governments to achieve human rights and peace.
  • It cost us our respect of ourselves and others.
