Chris - Thank you for this beautiful piece. Taking a courageous stand, you have articulated the view of spiritual leaders throughout history. In these days of instant access to news and the ability to comment instantly and anonymously, it seems our worst tendencies bubble to the top. Yes, as you say, let's stop and think. Instant and headline news of devastating events, complete with video, can be used for the good -- or can be judged instantly, without thought and information.
