Maybe there is hope


Amid all this bloodshed going on in the Middle East ... I think I do see some hope ... and I found it in a rather small section of a news article.

It said that the Lebanese government had posted guards outside the US embassy to prevent people from getting too close... and that the local politicians and law enforcement actually broke up the storming of the UN embassy/headquarters in Beruit....

Now that may seem like a small thing, but to me that says that at least a few people are thinking and realizing that they can do something to break this cycle of violence...

...and part of that is coming to accept that when a conflict breaks out between two parties, BOTH parties share the blame, and it takes both parties to truly stop the conflict....

That gives me hope that someday world peace may just be achieved ... it may mean that the world is broken into pieces ...meaning that people will be thinking for themselves and their won't be a 'them' and 'us' mentality instead hoepfully it'd be a 'you' and 'me' ..which makes a difference....

but until then it may just have to be fought out.... there are times I wish I had let my brothers fight their disagreements out, if for no other reason than to learn that violence doesn't really bring long term solutions....

I had to do that with my sons...well, unless one or the other or both started turning blue or whatever, of course. They...sort of...have learned that lesson.
