I look around and all I see are peaceful people. The average person just wants to work, fall in love, have kids, have a few beers now and then, watch
television, go out to dinner... Though I'm sure they're out there, but throughout my life I have yet to meet anyone who wants to kill, whose life
goal is to create war and havoc.
And yet, here we are, a species with a history so steeped in war that it compels us to accept that we are a savage lot. So, when I read, 'If you
don't learn from history you're doomed to repeat it,' I must question if we actually can learn from history? We just keep making this planet a more
and more dangerous place to live.
I don't think we can turn it around. And, I absolutely HATE believing this.
