Can we eradicate terrorism?
As the details of the tragedy unfold in Utoya and Oslo Norway we all struggle for answers. Terrorism and the war on terrorism once again strike innocent people.
How do we eradicate terrorism?
Perhaps we should strive for balance not unity. We strive for tolerance and understanding. We allow ourselves to become closer to nature. We open our minds and hearts to peace and love. Maybe you think I’m being simple-minded. I am. Is this wrong?
If we allow ourselves the clarity to remove our barriers of history and culture…of politics and religion…we actually might be awakened with a simply truth that has promise. A truth that focuses on the life of humanity.
But do I have the mind and strength to break through all of these barriers if I choose? We each have this ability to do so if we deem it a necessity to the human race.
Life stumbles on with an awkward void for humanity. The one thing in life you would think we all would cherish…but society as a whole has chosen to squander humanity instead of saving it.
