This morning as we ate breakfast in the canteen I watched the BBC World News and my overwhelming emotion was that this world is really screwed up in a big way - Not one good news story - unless you are a Man City supporter - just stories about people killing one another for no apparent reason - Not even in the animal kingdom where nature is played out on instinct and not logic, do we see such disregard for a fellow member of the same species - what is it with humans? Especially what is going on in the Arab communities and countries - man this is not good - As I pondered this the following statement by a man not unfamiliar with conflict and turmoil came to mind - I repeat it hereunder and appeal to all my fellow occupants of this planet to take these words to heart - Have a great day people - lets be peaceful, let's love !!
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
