Eight Years

"We’re human beings, with the blood of a million savage years on our hands. But we can stop it. We can admit that we’re killers … but we’re not going to kill today.
That’s all it takes!
Knowing that we’re not going to kill today."
-- Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek (TOS) episode "A Taste of Armageddon" (1967)

Yeah, I used this speech on last September 11 too, but it bears endless repeating, don't you think?

[The image of Kirk refusing to kill the enemy Gorn captain is from "Arena" (1966).]
