The Need For Kindness..and Consideration for Others

The Saturday edition of the New York Times showed an attack by the Taliban on a UN compound.  It showed how a scared child was running away from the scene of the latest carnage by the Taliban:

 

This image, available @ http://www.nytimes.com, showed the continued state of chaos that exists in Afghanistan today.  The impending withdrawal of the United States and the winding down of the drone war that President Obama announced will present profound challenges for the United States and the stability of Southeast Asia.     

As I saw this tragic image, I could not help but be reminded of this admonition that I pray that all who claim to fight for freedom and justice will abide by.   There should be a better way than the carnage that the people of the World seem to endure--especially as America remembers all who served on this Memorial Day Week-End:

To be a beneficial presence in the world,
cultivate a conscious awareness of your unity with Spirit.
Expect good in your own life.
Desire good for all others as well.
See and affirm abundant blessings of peace,
health, and plenty for everyone.
Align your thoughts with peace and happiness,
and realize that these qualities are your true nature.
