Quotation of the Week

“Never be a person who wants war—hate it with everything you’ve got.
But if you’ve got to fight to protect people, try to do your job the best you know how.
Protecting people is the only reason to ever fight.”
–Grandpa in Stand Tall, by Joan Bauer
= Available at Sembach Library

Sonder is a German prefix meaning "special."
