How do we make it better?

Many times you read in the news about these
desperate people who in their final act of their life,
want to shout out a message and kill as many innocents
just before killing themselves.

They are called terrorists and without thinking
a group of nationalist often extreme right wing people
want retaliation; resulting in more violence, more destruction

We have seen a few of these stupid retaliation efforts in the past one month.
Assad went on to use bombs on his own people, killing so many Syrians.
Leadership of the USA was moved by the images and went on to
cause some more destruction and more death among the Syrians
by using 59 missiles. This is just one of these events.

Let us think for a short while why people commit these crimes, these acts of terror.
How important is the huge distortion in the distribution of wealth
in all the violence directed to the western world?
How important is poverty, hunger in the creation of anger and extremism?
Does causing more destruction (by retaliations) and causing more poverty
help in reducing the violence in the world?

Please my friends, my readers,
before voicing out any support for revenge or retaliations
remember the success of people like Ghandi,
who effectively decided to practice: turn the other cheek.

Let us all together make things better in the world,
not worse!

Let us not spread anger and hatred
Let us spread education, goodness, wisdom!
