“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
― Dwight D. EisenhowerNo one leaves the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbour, Hawaii without feeling the loss – of lives cut short in an instant …. And looking down into the quiet green depths to the rusting remains of the battleship there is time to reflect on the meaning of war and sacrifice. The remains of 1,102 sailors and marines lie below these waters, and each year on request, divers interr the ashes of remaining crew members into the heart of the ship.
