What a beautiful story of the Brotherhood of Man. Imagine what we all could do if we stood together united as a species!
Judge not, love all, be at peace
It is much harder to create than it is to destroy.
It is much harder to love than it is to hate.
War for some strange reason has a rejuvenating effect on human beings, as it tends to be the primary fuel of the creative cycle. Most modern
innovations and technological advancements were developed by the military to aide it in killing and destroying and then passed on to us later, this
even includes the Internet which was originally developed as an alternative communications system that could hopefully withstand a full nuclear attack
and still enable commanders in the field to communicate with headquarters.
What we often destroy through war, and then we rebuild, better, and improved. Who made the Japanese Electronics and Automobile business so much better
than America’s? American’s rebuilding it with our money and our latest innovations after World War II.
Rome in fact has always offered War or Peace and been blithely indifferent as to which the people decide.
All this jealousy, envy, distrust, suspicion and hate fuels the human competitive spirit and acts as a bizarre engine of growth.
Yet it remains very much a two sided sword. The latest crowd control techniques like Sonic Cannons and Microwave Weapons are tested in places like
Iraq and then sold to American Police Departments for use against Americans too. Unmanned drones that relentlessly hunt ‘enemy combatants’
overseas, also have taken to American skies to hunt Americans.
The truth is we live in a world full of frustrated angry and remorseful people, always looking to vent that on someone or something, because they just
can’t let those disappointments, slights imagined and real, jealousies, and fears go.
We could accomplish so much more, in the light, and with love, and sadly even here in this story, this act of charitable kindness and compassion is
the direct result and response to one of violence and war.
Maybe one day people, people in general will realize that war and violence isn’t the answer, and that they will finally arrive at the right place,
for the right reasons instead of the wrong ones.
In the meantime there is always more than one way to skin a cat.
People full of pride and stubbornness often have to learn their lessons the hard way.
Wouldn’t it be great if some people actually learned something from this?
