What you and I know

"But you and I know that this war will not have any real victors and that, once it is over, we shall still have to go on living together forever on the same soil." ~Albert Camus

Thanks for this post, Tom. Very applicable to many conflicts including our Framingham lawsuit concerning SMOC.

Would like to hear more about Camus and other comments about conflicts and resolutions.

I've always thought Camus' "The Myth of Sysyphus" was as much an homage to persisting endeavor as it was some philosophical musing on futility. That futile persisting endeavor —like working for peace— mightn't ever attain its end. But I prefer it to complacency.
