Let It Lie [Sep. 26th, 2017|10:36 am]
Tony Grist
If only we could view our history as we view its artefacts- with an admiring and affectionate detachment- holding it up to the light, admitting the flaws. How much bad stuff has gone down because your grandfather was mean to my grandfather? Our ancestors were interesting people, delightful people, creative people but let's let their hatreds die with them.

yes, too many people want to take on the burden of revenge.
it's a tradition that needs to stop.

getting even is bogus concept, there is no closure.
killing does not bring people back. sigh.

the eye for an eye only makes people blind to change.

think after 50 thousand years people would have figured it out.

The French and the Germans have called a halt to killing one another- after a long history of invasion and counter invasion. It shows it can be done.
