The terrible news reached us here in the Uk last night of the terrible atrocity carried out in Boston.We have reached now the twenty first century, but it sometimes appears we have not advanced or evolved as far as we think.
Our news channels and newspapers often report the negative aspects of our shared humanity, both on a smaller scale as well as the awful events such as this one. But I think it is important to remember that there are thousands, if not millions, of people out there who are striving to make their communities, and so the world, a better place.
When only these negative events are highlighted, we lose the true balance and can despair for ourselves and for our children. It is important that we don’t let these acts of terror either challenge our values, or change our true nature.
Hearts and prayers go out to the people of Boston.
