I will keep this post brief because I want to make an important point. The attacks on Brussels yesterday saddens me. These type of events are against everything I stand for. This violence is against what every decent person stands for. Life is sacred, because we are all human. We should all have the right to go about our daily business without fear. We should all have the right not to be inflicted with violence. Each of us deserves to be treated with respect and we deserve to have dignity and be treated in a dignified way. That goes for every single one of us.
Unfortunately humanity suffers from “man`s inhumanity to man”. We are the only organism that poses the greatest threat to humanity. We are our own worst enemy. We are capable of annihilating our own selves and have the weapons to do so.
I feel the best way to defeat this violent tendency toward each other on an international scale is to counter these negative behaviors from the ground up as decent, peace loving people. The majority of us do not want violence and war. So do not treat others with violence or contempt. Let us try to understand each other.
Every day ask yourself “Who might need my help today” Maybe then those that favor war and violence will find less and less support for their acts of violence. I hope.
