Torture, good and evil prove thorny

Responses to July editorial split 50-50

The July editorial (page 58) using the language of the war in Iraq and the powerful words of our faith touched me so deeply that I cried tears of sadness but also of relief. Your words answered the questions flaring--no, blazing!--in my mind and heart from hearing the shocking phrases used to move us into war and beyond. When we speak or write, my rabbi friend tells me, heaven should come to earth. Thank you for your words.
