We have so many grand memories of France and, as such, have felt the effects of last night’s violence in Paris.
We have traveled the entire country of France by plane, train and car. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth. Naturally, our minds flashed to how we could have easily been back in Paris sitting in a cafe with a glass of wine, or attending a concert for a California band, the state where we live.
At this emotional time, we send love and light to Paris, and to those other victims of terrorism around the world who go unnoticed, invisible.
With all the news coverage and global support that Paris is receiving, perhaps the tragedy in the City of Light can bring an awareness that terrorism is not only tragic when it happens in the west, and that it happens every day, and kills hundreds of innocents all over the globe…and that we must come up with a solution to come together as one human race to end this senseless violence.
We can send each other text messages across globe instantaneously, we can send telescopes to the edges of the solar system, we can walk on the surface of the moon, so we can solve the issues of human conflict if we put the same intelligence, research, time and energy behind the problem as we do on rocket science, astrophysics and technological advancement.
WHAT’S THE USE OF UNPARALLELED TECHNOLOGICAL “PROGRESS” WHEN WE BEHAVE LIKE BARBARIANS, WARRING AND HATING EACH OTHER OVER RELIGION, ETHNICITY AND SKIN COLOR?
As the human race, we must remember that we have a choice: we can be each other’s greatest enemy, or we can be each other’s greatest friend.
Some of you may read this and say I’m a dreamer. Well, I’m not the only one.
