Diary (6) "Maybe we just all lose"

"Maybe we just all lose".

That was the sad thought that went through my mind.
I don’t presume to apportion guilt. Or responsibility. What do I really understand about a conflict that has been going on for a thousand years? I have read about it. I study it.
I try to see both sides of the story.

All I know is that I feel sorry for the anguished man in the photo, weeping over his dead colleague or relative.
Smoke rises, and yet again the forces of compassion and cultural outreach, the forces of tolerance and understanding, take a beating. Another cycle, another twist in the downward spiral, another black day for our human family.

It is hard to grasp the price we will all pay for this one day. As more hate spreads throughout the Islamic world.

The victim with the raised index finger I understand is praying. Invoking the power of his God. I don’t mock it.

Not at all.    

The hatred…. demeans us…
