Unfortunately is something that happens every day,the "logic of taking lives" is opposing the miracle of giving life.

Fortunately there were not many incidents lately, only in certain places, and I hope will not happen,Ever, because such an incident....
The LCDR, a rugged, rough hardened man cried as he turned away. Every day I go into work taking my job on as life-and-death ever since.
For those who love people animals will be safe.
I am an animal lover, but I love people more.

I don't believe that is true. So much of the bible is corruption. I believe he was a very special mystery eastern influence, from Egypt, who knows, even Buddhist, and influenced by the great philosophers and stoics, and that he was NOT the conventional Jewish emblem I believe he came to teach us to go within, and raise our love, kindness and frequency. That his story was hijacked by rome and the sumar hybrids, after he was murdered for telling who their "father" really was.

The time has come as time has gone,with no place to go.
Maybe we must go further and ask our selves: What real power is

20 years Coast Guard. You betcha. In my second 20 years of service, I'm in now training ship drivers in their simulators. Used to also train SOAC and XO schools for every USN sub in the world for years until the got their own simulator in Groton. A USN LCDR came up to me a couple years after he was in the simulators and with a trembling voice explained it was all my credit their sub didn't collide with a super tanker in the Med. Long story short, even though you may be tempted to turn left in international waters in an offset, but still head-on situation, both MUST come right (Andrea Dorea - Stolkholm incident setup). The CO and XO of the sub wanted to come left to open up the CPA, but this OPS off. who had the CONN refused and threw a fit on the bridge almost threatening the CO and XO. In the heat of the argument, the supertanker turned right like it was supposed to. If the sub had turned left it would have been cut in half. The LCDR, a rugged, rough hardened man cried as he turned away. Every day I go into work taking my job on as life-and-death ever since.
Something like that.
Perhaps you can elaborate.
The illusion of power causes many to fool themselves and justify their actions.
