To all of our Senators and Representatives,
War is murder. Military action is murder. We have to stop murdering each other. No more war, please. We don't need to kill Syrians to get Syrians to stop killing Syrians. Neither will it work. And it does not give us higher ground to stand on, if we've killed in the name of the end of killing.
We've stood by for over a year while the government of Syria killed thousands with guns and bombs and knives. By taking action now, we are saying that the killing that occurred before the use of chemicals was just fine.
Killing does not stop killing. Let's be the change we want to see. Please vote against so-called military action. Please encourage your colleagues to vote against it, too. Please tell everyone you speak with to oppose any such thing.
