I rec'd this notice from FOLD 3 as a teaser to subscribe. It brought to mind how much we work on Wars.

Paraphrasing an observation by philosopher-and author- Hannah Arendt, best known for "Eichmann in Jerusalem" which recorded the contemporary trial of a notorious Nazi:

"Men's lives are recorded by their Mortality, Women's lives are recorded by their Natality."

By which, I believe she meant- men's birthdates are obtained through dates of death and service in wartime. Woman's lives are noted for birth of children, and their presence in times of Accord.
