More Than Words

My name is Ellen.
On the 5th December, 2013, I take leave from loved ones, from university and from my lifestyle as I know it to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Australia, Adelaide.
I will be gone for a period of 18 months.

If you'd like to write to me, you can snail mail me at:

SISTER ELLEN LOUISE MAGALLANES
PO Box 97
Marden SA 5070


Until I return, this blog will be on hiatus.
God be with you until we meet again. :)
A true war story is never moral. It does not instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest models of proper human behavior, nor restrain men from doing the things men have always done. If a story seems moral, do not believe it. If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. There is no rectitude whatsoever. There is no virtue. As a first rule of thumb, therefore, you can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil.
