Daily Draw: New Vision Tarot ~ 5 of Swords

The reverse side of war, particularly modern day war. There can be no winners or losers if there ever was such a thing in war. And when the soldiers return to find there is also no home or family left what can remain? The probability is hate. Hate that simmers and mutates and feeds the next generations. And so the Wheel goes.

I'm reminded by this card there are always two sides in conflict, to use both eyes and ears and be very slow to judge.

"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. Eisenhower 1890-1969
