Swords into Ploughshares, Offices into Warships

USS New York

from stockie at the korean war memorial lixnaw;

The USS New York has been launched. You may or may not know that steel from the rubble of theWorld Trade Center was used in the building of this ship.

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus said at the amphibious assault ship's commissioning "No matter how many times you attack us, we always come back, America always comes back. That's what this ship represents."

From the bible, Isiah 2.4 "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more."

I'm off for a quick one.
