Google Gaza

I couldn't start my blog today without mentioning Gaza and the terrible things happening there at this moment. I Googled Gaza and the images that appeared were too terrible to show here. You might do the same and ask these three questions as I have:
All in the name of religion?
Is it worth it?
And more importantly WHY?

It's just heartbreaking. And yes, WHY? Indeed, WHY? Haven't we learned by now that war never solves anything??!!

Humans are bloodthirsty dogs is why.

Some humans are bloodthirsty dogs. However, I am reading more and more comments along these lines that Paris Parfait has written. Some of us know that war is not the answer to every conflict and I would venture to say that it is rarely the answer. It seems like every generation has to relearn what we all should already know. If there is any time in human history that we should be able to see and learn from our mistakes, it is now. Events happen so quickly, but the spread of information is critical and valuable in this age. Just maybe the internet will make a difference soon. I see letters to the editors daily from people all over the world expressing their dismay that this conflict cannot be solved without bloodshed. My heart goes out to those who are suffering.
