It's ALL in HOW You Look at IT!

Read a quote from George Orwell "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
We live in America and have our freedoms because of the sacrifices through bloodshed of our men and women in battle.  I may not agree with war but history has shown that when good men do nothing, evil will be unleashed.

Read a story about  a General upset by the American Indian custom of making their wives walk behind them and he complained to the Indian Chief.  Warriors, the Indian Chief explained, were going before their women to clear the path and make a way for them.

People make so many judgement calls based on what they see but with no understanding.  Let's all take a breath and slow down long enough to open our eyes to see what is really happening.

Try an experiment.  Imagine looking at a situation through someone else's eyes.  This requires some intelligence and some empathy.  Reading is an excellent source of insight into other lives.  Become a researcher.  Lay aside your past experiences. Look at things anew.  It is all in how you look at it!
