Please stop killing each other

Dear everyone,

Please stop killing each other.

When ancient wisdom declared “do not kill,” it was not a suggestion, or a phrase to be modified by, “unless…” 

Please stop. 

I know it is difficult to refrain from action and our impulse is to react. I get it . Anger, fear, aggression and hate are present in all of us – they are present in me.

When you feel angry, scared or insulted – pause; pray; take a deep breath; listen; do whatever you can to calm down. Rather than lashing out at people (especially those different from you), try helping instead.

See what happens. You might be surprised.

PGS
