Over 60,000 killed in Syria,killing in our schools, of our children, societal and environmental upheavals--We have so much to learn here and we will keep learning until we get it right. It begins within and believing that we are loved and acting like it. We were not given dominion over other persons (and by persons I mean of all animal, mineral and plant kingdoms), nor does anyone or any religion have the "right" path nor the right to disrespect others for their own ways. We make choices everyday, in our thoughts. Our thoughts are real and when they're fueled with emotion they have muscle to live and will either help or harm others. Last night I checked on the gatekeeper of my thoughts. Respect is her/his name. Compassion is another.
