How is it that we managed to survive this long
Using violence against others indiscriminately
Maiming, killing for the sake of oil and profit
Are we really that cold and uncivilized
No excuse can convince me otherwise
I mourn the loss of all human life
Their families given little time to grieve
Yells for mercy are met with yet another bomb

Sad, true, and beautiful writing, all at the same time.
Thank you Victor, I appreciate the compliment very much.
We are capable of so much more! Thank you because this post asks questions that we need to be examining closely!
I hope that it does, I’m so disappointed right now in our lack of humanity.

A LITTLE CAUSTIC…THIS ACROSTIC.
Perhaps my friend and thank you for the re-blog, much appreciated.
It is often said that civility is only there when its convenient for the aggressor.
I honestly do believe that and I don’t think we have done a very good job at being civil ourselves, but we are very quick to question the civility of others. Thanks Martha.
Aye, being civil is something I work on as well. I’ve had my younger brother (my youngest sibling) call me on it, though at least it’s been several years since that moment. I like to think I’m not as bad as I was then.
Practice, practice, practice.
We all hope that with age would come civility, but as we have witnessed that isn’t always the case. Like you say all you can do is “practice, practice, practice”.
I wonder too..And – for how much longer?
I probably don’t want to know how much longer. Thanks RoSy.
You pose so many well timed questions…You can hope that things can turn around but it just seems (sometimes) we are hurdling toward our own made ending!
Indeed it does, we seem to be spiraling by our own hands.
