The United States has been embroiled in continuous open warfare in numerous countries for nearly 20 years. There's no real conversation by our leaders to end them; more talk is dedicated in expanding them. This very real and dangerous fact is often met with indifference by the public, and more often than not absent from our national discourse. So normalized are these wars that it has become an afterthought and very little critical thinking is put to them.

Many of us are looking for guidance on how to move forward after the tragedies last week: The cowardly ambush that killed five police officers in Dallas, and the police shootings in the days before that killed two black men, Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
