Wind-driven clouds shape-shifting mountains, silver light gleaming off water gray, cool and utterly embracing, had me feeling clear, pure, happy, like Koko spinning on the coarse coral sand.
Later, skin still salt-encrusted, listening to Kamran on the radio, talking about his show as a place of “coming awake together… common people saying enough is enough,” and then he went on to opine: “the war on terror should never have started.”
And that got me thinking, can we not all agree that, at its essence, war = terror?
So what in the world can the world be thinking to wage terror on terror; wage terror on drugs; wage terror on crime?
Is it any surprise that in waging terror, we get terror?
So what if were to decide instead to wage something other than terror on the world’s woes, put all our resources into that, instead of our various and sundry terror machines?
Would those campaigns be any more successful? And what kind of world would we be living in along the way to finding out?
Just a thought.
Because you know, anything is possible.
