Be the change you wish to see in the world

I remember when my brother gave me tickets to see Lily Tomlin's "Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe."

It was one of the most moving pieces of theatre I have ever seen. Among the many messages embedded in the play was the concept of how each individual can be part of the collective conscience to stop the madness escalating all around us out of control.

So, once again, I will ask those inflicting their inner pain onto others, to please, stop. If your stated objectives are truly what you are attempting to achieve, then stop. And work on the solution, as opposed to creating more problems and hardships and pain and anger that will have to be cleaned up.

Mr. President, if you really believe that the nation of Israel has the right to defend itself as you say, what about the nation of Lebanon? Who is going to put all these broken pieces back together?

When America decided that it was 'the last World Superpower," and the world's policeman, that responsibility meant that they --we-- do not have the right to pick and choose when and where we will intercede. What would happen if you called 911 and the operator told you, "sorry, that's not our problem."
