"Any country that sends only it's young to war, deserves to loose, both its young and the war." - SGGT Edward Parker Gyokeres
Watch Soldiers of Conscience.
Eight US Soldiers today face the most difficult decision of their lives: to kill or not to kill.
A film about ware, peace, and the transformative power of the human conscience.
Their country asked them to kill. Their hearts asked them to stop.
Four sincere war fighters and four sincere conscientious objectors (CO), all struggling over the question.
Made with the official permission from the U.S. Army, this film transcends the usual divisive rhetoric of politics and instead reveals a surprising shared truth. All our soldiers are "soldiers of conscience" torn between the demands of duty and the call of conscience.
"I was walking through the Garden of Eden with an M-16, and I had to ask, what am I doing here?" - Conscientious Objector, Kevin Benderman
When we going to have a good DRAFT?
