“Dance as though no one
is watching you. Love as
though you have never been
hurt before. Sing as though
no one can hear you.
Live as though heaven is on earth.”
We hate war as well - but we are always prepared for it (as, no doubt Israel is as well!Anzac Day (25th April) and Remembrance Day (11th November) are two days for us when we show our respect for those who did take up the call when needed and those many who never returned!
Well said by Golda Meir!
I don't think God intended us to have political boundaries when He created earth. These are man-made and we will never have peace while these exist. I do like the Golda Meir sentiments though!
I'm with you. Peace to all. Sue
As a Jew...I say...never again. but when I look out at the world today...and hear the screams "we will wipe Israel off the face of the earth" I shudder. I pray never again but I brace for whatever is to come.
I do not believe that ordinary Israelis or ordinary Palestinians want war - they just want to get on with their lives. Unfortunately it is the fanatics and fundamentalists on both sides who prefer war to compromise. Thank you, Cathy, for this provocative, interesting post. What would Golda say about the state of Israel today? cheers, catmint
