But not standing up costs a lot more … if people had acted sooner, Adolf Hitler would not have been able to inflict the horror on the millions of people … not only in concentration camps, but all around the world.
Peace is always the goal but for peace to be attainable, Respect Levels must rise beyond what they have been and what they are now.
How they will rise is by people Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE because it is not based on any qualifier … politics … religion … social status … race … etc.
A life is a life and taking one, except out of protection and to stop bullying … aggression … tyranny demonstrates not only the lowest Respect Level for other people, but also for one’s self … because when one truly values … respects … his or her self, a person is then capable of valuing other lives and no longer requires the need to control others to feel okay about themselves.
My prayers, and hopefully many other people’s prayers tonight, will go out not only to the soldier shot point-blank outside Canada’s Parliament today, but for those who inflicting such horror … so their pain will ease and they will see clearly that bullying … aggression … tyranny … and hate only begets violence for their violence.
