Right, I've been a fan of this site for ages, but I've only registered today. I didn't plan to, but now I want to put in my two cents so to
I haven't read all 28 pages on here so my post isn't likely to flow from the last, but anyway . . .
I was very touched by the many photos in that link. The pain and the love in people's faces is very apparent.
What I do not like is the fury seeing those photos creates among a lot of you. The whole 'eye for an eye' philosophy is likely to be what brought
about this mess.
Yes, military forces must be stopped. But it is wrong to think that yet another war will help anyone. I think, be angry, great - we should be. But we
mustn't think that commiting the same evils they have done is right.
For peace to prevail, there can be no bloodshed.
I'm a pretty normal 21 year old girl, so unfortunetly I cannot provide a perfectly mapped out solution to this massive global problem of wars.
But I strongly believe we need to show Love. Even to those with the 'smoking gun'. Then perhaps the hate and anger in thier hearts will fade, and
they'll recognize the awesome beauty that is all over this wonderful planet, and they won't want to destroy life anymore, but celebrate it with the
rest of us.
I don't believe in evil as we understand it. I think there is only immense confusion and misdirection.
When we understand our part in the universe we can see that love is the one prevailing truth, the only thing that does not ever change.
And I know that this love is the creating force behind everything in existence, even though we haven't all realized it.
Soldiers are taught to kill or be killed; they're smiply trying to survive, and they're doing what they are told (misdirected) is the right
Remeber after 9/11, you Americans were so bloodthirsty for revenge. I've seen clips of seemily ordinary people shouting that the Iraqi's women and
children should be slaughtered and punished. But it wasn't them. It was your leaders, and they got exactly the reaction they wanted. The Iranians or
whoever have done nothing to you, yet they took the brunt of the nation's rage. You're the most powerful country in the world at the moment, why
would they be so stupid as to attack you? And why was it just the one-off if they really want to harm you?
Too many of us speak before we really think.
Every nation on this planet should come to the understanding we are all the same at our core. We all live through our emotions; we all crave love, we
all enjoy laughing, and we all suffer when one of us suffers.
It's about time that we put aside our petty superficial differences, and in fact celebrate our variety as it gives us more experiences, and should
thus lead to better learning.
But this can only be achieve when our hearts are in the right places.
I say enough is enough. We have to stop pandering to the wants of the misguided few who would see us quabble and fight and destroy ourselves.
This is not in our true nature - that's why war is so heartbreaking.
We are loving beings - it's time to put this into practice.
Once we are all together in love, wisdom and joy, we can begin advancing ourselves as a species, and moving into new realms of intelligence and
discovery un-percieveable to our now bloodstained eyes.
