Our Paris, Our World

The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower

Good Night, God!

There is such a Rising Tide of Hate, Dear God, that I fear for our species. I would like to say the hate is from Other People, Other Countries, other Cultures. But, I have seen it here in America.

Actually, God, when Our Dear Paris was attacked I felt it too . . . hatred burning a hole in my heart.

But, that was exactly what the terrorist want. They want to inspire fear . . . and then hate. After all, that is the primary purpose of hate — to create more hate.

What to do? I like to hope, God, that we are all asking ourselves What To Do? Dragnets are going out to pick up suspects. And I hope they do a good job. But, I just watched an interview with a Green Beret who said hate and violence really doesn’t work well. During his second tour in Afghanistan he realized that there were MORE Taliban than when we had started.

He offers practical tips on how to deal with terrorism. It is a video that we all should watch.

As for myself — I see countries with a high percentage of unemployed young men — and I see trouble. Meaningful work that provides a sense of self respect and a feeling of hope for the future is essential! How is it God, that creating this kind of useful meaningful work doesn’t seem to be anyones responsibility?

Is it because there is no monetary profit in it? Let me see — profit? or the continuation of civilization?
