We have no greater need in the world today than a return to reason, thoughtful consideration, and moral balance. We no longer live in a world where people or countries can act merely on impulse, or as if other people don’t exist and don’t matter.
It is time to put away tribalism and start learning how to live together with at least one common ethic. That ethic is that no one based on a religious belief may take the life of another.
We MUST learn to value life and not dogma. To kill another who does not threaten your own physical existence is to act psychotically. It is time to start living, sanely, humanely, and spiritually rather than just religiously.
