Teaching Hatred is Inexcusable (No Joke)

Here is an example of the evils of our day...purposefully defaming a group and teaching children to see the other as less than human. How can we make PEACE and heal the world when there are religious leaders/teachers and, yes, parents who teach children lies, hatred and glory in martyrdom?

We should embrace and/or live in peace with each other, but how can we if we stab one another in the back and in the heart? Our fear keeps us from embracing. I HOPE that the situation can change.

We must teach/learn each other' histories--accurately and with compassion. For there to be hope for our children's futures the LIES MUST STOP; violence must cease. We have to change the dance. We must plant seeds of peace.


It's called refusing to be enemies; the irony is that WE ARE ALL RELATED!
