Generation Kill Part 7, “Bomb in the Garden"

Maybe we shouldn’t play football anymore.

Culturally, these Marines would be virtually unrecognizable to their forebears in the “Greatest Generation.” They are kids raised on hip-hop, Marilyn Manson and Jerry Springer.

But your touch, calms people. That’s a gift from God.

It’s not a gift. God would never give such a painful thing.
