Are you watching the horrible video coming out of the middle east? I'm turning off CNN because it's just a continual loop of bombs and fireballs and flames against the night sky. It makes me so sad to see what we do to each other. Watching the representatives of each side battle it out on cable television makes me just as sad. It reminds me of marriage counseling--each side so deeply wounded that they can only focus on their own hurt and have no empathy for the hurt of the other, each side so angry about their own grievances that they have no insight into their part of the conflict. Lord, have mercy.
