on anger.

four Marines were killed today. I heard about this on Facebook, from a U.S. Marine, who is understandably, upset.

I did a search on this for more information. One of the articles said that “investigators do not believe that there are any more threats to the general public.” They are treating this as “domestic terrorism.” I think I disagree though.

I think that because we clearly are living in a culture of divisiveness, intolerance, ungratefulness, anger, greed, and suspicion–that there is a lot of reason to believe that many, many things Like This will continue to occur. Sadly, the gut reaction is often for each to tighten up their personal borders and look at their neighbors and grow an “us” vs “them” mentality. This seems valid for everyone when history shows tallies of generations of wrongs and hurts that will never be sorted out.

The best thing we can all do is find constructive outlets for the very real feelings we should have at all the injustice around us. No one should starve, or have their freedoms removed, or their life endangered. It seems a simple thing to desire peace and too complicated a thing to universally apply it. But an important struggle.
