This is not a post about the tragic assassination of Benazir Bhutto. This is a post about 'PEACE', 'Liberty' style. It's simple really. If I go out and my door is not locked, you do not have the right to go inside and steal my stuff. Same goes for unlocked cars. And our small children. They are ours, so don't be kidnapping them. As far as hurting someone else physically, psychologically or emotionally. Nope, you can't do that either. If we want to have a spiritual life, any type, that's our business, not yours. Everyone is equal. We all have the right to choose who leads us. Doesn't matter what country you're in, you can not control the people. The people decide how life will be in their world. Now for guns. You can have one, but if you have one the chances of you actually using it is far greater than someone who doesn't have one. Borders. O.K., here's my rant on this. We live in a global world. There are no borders anymore. We all live on this Earth. Wars: no wars allowed on this planet. And if you want to start a war, you must have a vote by everyone to see if it can go forward. Women: we are just as capable as men to do anything. Again, I'll repeat: We are all equal. Benazir: I've been hearing so much about 'Why did she stand up out of the vehicle?' In a peaceful world overflowing with manners, that is a perfectly acceptable behavior. Now go be nice to your pet, your elders and take a good look in the mirror. What can you do personally to contribute to the peace process? (Blowing yourself up is not one of them.)
"Democracy is the acknowledgement that different points of view exist."-Irshad Manji , A Great Canadian Woman. The New York Times describes Irshad Manji as "Osama bin Laden’s worst nightmare." Oprah's Magazine has given Irshad the first annual Chutzpah Award for "audacity, nerve, boldness and conviction." She takes both as a compliment.
