The bane of our world is violence.
Violence comes from fear.
When we get a fright we respond with fight or flight.
So our aggressive actions are triggered by fears.
In the darkness we imagine that violence can win.
But the end does not justify the means.
The end is the means.
Violence begets violence.
Fear begets fear.
So, rather than perpetuating violence on earth, we should address the fear that causes violence.
Beginning and ending with the fear of God.
