Thank you Schmidt and well said! Yes, there are zealots on both sides and is tolerance and self control that must prevail. Ever since Vietnam, I've seen a cosmic advance in weaponry and it's mind boggling to think what mankind is doing to humanity. I feel fortunate in my faith and comfort in the Promises. So, whatever evil or terror comes my way, so be it, I'll be singing and dancing soon after. I cannot help the world and I never try, but I do profess my faith and try to live it by helping others and being a good example. Although it is difficult, because mankind has made it so easy to condemn others whatever their beliefs may be. The good times I remember as young lad marching though the woods with my best buddy (dog) and my gun hunting rabbits and squirrels. Just me and nature was as pleasant as it could get, than adulthood happened, war happened, education happened, death happened, threats happened, responsibilities happened. This pleasantry of life seemed to disappear, but I have always carried the life preserver of faith through the many dismal periods in life. It helps me! Vietnam is a bad memory, but it will not be the last, there are more Vietnams coming, and some are now saying Iraq and Afghanistan are Vietnam candidates.
