I admit it is a beautiful sentiment however...
it's been almost six years since my fifteen year old son was murdered...
everyday there are to thinks I think about... what would my son look like if he were alive today? Would I know him if I saw him walking down the street..
And what would I do to the man who killed him? To be sure it wouldn't be done out of love... but with with every once of six years of pure malice I have nurtured for this person...
there are academic enemies then There are real enemies I have no love for the latter
If one is on a path of peace, which IMOP is the best path to take, then he never meets anyone. Only if he stays on his path. If someone tries to do violence to you and you to him, then you left your path and are now traveling his path. Only by staying on your path will you make it to it's destination. So if you believe that violence is always wrong and peace is the only way, then off your path you will not go.
From the way I see it, there is a major difference between going as far as killing someone, and a parent lovingly, punishing their child. You do not kill your child because you love it. I mean maybe it's just me, but how on earth could that be wrong? That is love.
Who's job is it to teach our children these things. It is us parents. Right from wrong. We all know what is right and what is wrong, in our hearts. Our own hearts condemn us for what is wrong.
Yep, i agree with you. And the worse is we are living among the trash. It will make us smell like trash itself (to 'them' at least). Each human being is unique, with their own various abilities and disabilities. However, Society always imposes on us a COLLECTIVE way of behaving, everyone has to be the same (look like, at least) as everyone else. And that, in my view, it will create a serious illness to every unique individual. Here I'd like to quote Sir Winston Churchill "if you are going through hell, keep going". We will always belong to a society. IMHO, and the worse, society is like a prison for the liberty of every unique individual creature. Take it for granted, that's the trash.
