The War Prayer

Mark Twain has always been a favorite of mine and today I was reading the C&L blog and found this wonderful drawn animation of his work, "The War Prayer". It addresses the wonders of jingoism and the prayers of God's people. (NOT FOR CHILDREN!)

I have to say that I like your title on your blog...Truth & Beauty...Is it not that beauty come from the truth and that if we try to see what the eye don't see we discover a really gorgeous truth beauty ? ;-)
