A New Song

Interesting thought from the head of Britain’s armed forces, Nick Carter:

“We have to remember that history might not repeat itself but it has a rhythm, and if you look back at the last century, before both world wars, I think it was unarguable that there was escalation which led to the miscalculation which ultimately led to war at a scale we would hopefully never see again.”

The uncertainty in the world today could easily lead down this road if we don’t get better at treating our opponents as fellow members of the body of humanity.

War is hell. War is the least efficient and most destructive way to resolve differences of opinion.

Learn to love your neighbors. Incline your hearts to wisdom. Sing a new song that defies the old rhythm.

One thought on “A New Song

  1. Love and forgiveness are immediately applicable in both big and small arenas.
    I for one choose to exercise both more abundantly, in so doing the chords of my expression will tune to the singing of a new song.

    Thanks for setting the stage for this new agreement, wars and rumours of wars are the harbingers of fear and destruction in all areas of our function. The low road is not a choice, particularly because my heart and mind are hewn to the Truth.
