IT IS MY BELIEF WHAT RELIGION DOES FOR HUMANITY IS , IT GUIDES US IN A MORAL ,COMPASSIONATE AND PEACEFUL LIFE JOURNEY . BUT ALL RELIGIONS HAVE , AT TIMES , BEEN DIVERTED FROM THOSE IDEALS AND HAVE TURNED MALEVOLENT . IT IS LEFT TO THE MAJORITY OF THE CONGREGANTS IN EACH RELIGION TO STEER THE FAITHFUL BACK TO THE TRUE PATH OF THEIR RELIGION .AND IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT MULE ( RELIGION ) YOU RIDE TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN AS LONG AS YOU REACH THE TOP ! ( HEAVEN ,OR WHAT EVER YOUR RELIGION BELIEVES IS IT’S ULTIMATE GOAL )
TERRORISM….. how do we respond to terrorists , should we bomb , send in the troops , just what should we do ? In my opinion we can not over react to these groups . We can never be completely safe no matter what we do ,in my opinion . No matter how much money and resources we expend these people will always be there . We can not allow ourselves to be consumed by their actions or else we play right into their hands ! We should invest in intelligence and try to stop as many attacks as possible , but to enter a ground war is insane ! We have to live our lives normally realizing that we can never be totally safe from them …..or anything for that matter .
WAR …… Is war always the option to turn to ? I hope not . It is apparent that as a species we react to so many things as if it were a contest where a winner must be named . I believe it is better to analyze first , trying to see the other side’s point , then try to seek a compromise .
Before unleashing the dogs of war we must analyze the whys and what ifs , then look to history to see what wars have brought before . See all the deaths , maimed , and destruction they left behind . See all the positive ,the lives saved , the advancement of society in a positive way.
But if it is decided war is needed we must include all of our society , to invest everyone in the fight . We must budget time and resources in a manner to achieve the results we desire in a cost-effective and the shortest time possible and admit when it is no longer possible to go on .
Most importantly we must take care , long-term , those who we ask to fight for us no matter what !!!!

education …..are we educating our future generation as well as we did decades ago ? I don’t believe we are . I attended a school that had small classes (25/30) and we also had respect for the teachers and their position , it was just natural .
The school was clean and we had pride in the institution ! I had the opportunity ,35 years later , to tour the school. What i saw was so depressing those memories will never leave me. the children were screaming and running in the hallways , laying on the desks and the place just smelled awful .
i believe these things and others have produced children who don’t believe in the importance of a good education ,do not respect authority and they are children who fell entitled !
I reentered the military 25 years after my first military tour . I scored much higher on the entrance exam than i had originally , when i questioned this the told me they needed to dumb down the test so they would be able to meet quotas ! Is this reaching forward or turning backwards !?
