"Believing war is beyond words is an abrogation of responsibility - it lets civilians off the hook from trying to understand, and veterans off the hook from needing to explain. You don't honor someone by telling them, 'I can never imagine what you've been through.' Instead, listen to their story and try to imagine being in it, no matter how hard or uncomfortable that feels. If the past 10 years have taught us anything, it's that in the age of an all-volunteer military, it is far too easy for Americans to send soldiers on deployment after deployment without making a serious effort to imagine what that means. We can do better." -Phil Klay
