There are so many things in life I don’t understand, but I ask questions. Answers to my questions have broadened my understanding. With more knowledge, I ask more questions.
Most of my years in the corporate world, I worked in the telephone industry where acronyms are frequently used. During meetings, when a word or acronym was used, that I didn’t understand, I asked for the meaning. So many times, after the meeting, someone would thank me for asking. Like me, they had no idea what was being talked about.
Currently I am totally perplexed about the war in Syria. In my opinion, America should not take part in that war.
Truthfully, I don’t understand the whole foreign war policy. We were involved in two wars in Iraq and one in Pakistan.
We lost thousands of Americans lives. Many more thousands are back home living with bionic limbs.
Thousands are wondering the streets homeless. There is no government assistance for these people, but, America is still sending millions of dollars to Iraq and Pakistan and other foreign countries.
If I have the facts right, all these foreign wars are the result of disagreements over religion. I don’t understand.
My God is a God of mercy and love. My God loves all people and is non discriminatory. My God is a God of peace and not war.
Someone once said that all wars should be waged over a chess board. When two waring factions come together, they would meet at a chess table. The stakes would be set before the game. Whoever won the game, won the stakes.
Of course that never happened because egos could not be reigned in to accept that great method of winning the battle. So wars rage on.
Computer hacking. Our site got hacked. Why? What does anyone have to gain from hacking our site or any site? It makes no sense.
How do we turn hate into love?
I don’t worry too much about global warming.
I worry about the homeless.
I worry about the returning war heroes who are not receiving the assistance they deserve.
I worry about the elderly who can’t make ends meet.
I worry about the people in foreign lands who never know what tomorrow may bring.
I worry about those who refuse to work together to find a solution to the problem.
I pray for those who think they are better than me.
I pray for understanding.
I pray for peace.
