Wars and what is sacred?

so much about Irag on the news,
I listen in wonder at greed,blindness and the question of whose God is holier?
I don't understand!
What I do understand and it seems very clear to me; is this-
The world sounds like my children fighting over their toys.
Each child certain of being right and not willing to listen to anything or anyone that opposes their view.
The rulers in the world are having bratfits and people are afraid.
They remind me of the blind men that had a different part of an elephant ,each one describing,their part of the elephant as the only way the elephant is. Each blind man argued with the other over who was right and nothing was learned about the elephant at all.
It seems to me that in our country we need to get the bratchildren out of goverment and put grownups in there.(there are none so blind as those who will not see) In my house my children are taught( and the grownups practise) this principle belief- your rights end where anothers begin .
amoung my friends are Buddist , Muslims,Athiests, Agnostics, Wiccans, Christians of different faiths, and Eckest. What we all have in common is our humanity and the unshakeable belief that all life is sacred and how one chooses to honor that is very personal and respected as such.
How do we keep the darkness away? By being the light. I pass on to you this quote -love with out strength produces a weakling and strength without love produces a brute. The lack of balance in this is what is wrong in our goverment. Our freedoms are being taken from us one by one under the guise of the great father in washington looking out for his children and that is how Native Americans almost became extinct. We cannot allow our goverment to continue to falsely represent who we are as a people and a nation . They have made a mess of it and now people hate Americans not because of what we did but because of what our goverment did in our name .
Our founding fathers had a vision for this country and this ain't it.I will not walk in fear and I will not let those who use fear as a weapon and /or as a reason to take away freedoms hard won in blood and sacrifice. I want people in goverment that walk the walk of the principles that are the heart of this country and what is the best of who we are .
these are my thoughts today.
