Terror in France

Horrible tragic terrorist attack in Nice, France.

Will flags ever fly at full mast?

The world needs a solution to the scourge of violence and I'm certain that no one political leader, no one political party, or sovereign country, or any one religion or religious leader has the solution or the power to end the violence.

It is time for people of peace to come together and not just re-act to violence with prayers, moments of silence and vigils; nor to re-act with more violence and hard-line tactics that further incite terrorists.

There needs to be rational, intelligent, carefully parsed responses at every level of the problem: political, economic, racial, ideological, mental health, sociological, cultural, educational and police/military.

And meanwhile, here in the US, we seem more hung up over bathroom laws and denying loving couples their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  1. I agree that people need to focus on the things that really matter in this life, not the things that don't. Beyond that, I have no idea what to do about the Hydra that threatens us all - and I'm afraid no one else, including all the high-paid "experts" in and out of government - really knows what to do either. Or they would already have done it, wouldn't they?

  2. Some kind of super think tank? I don't know either.
