The Consequences of Harboring Hate

Sooner or later all societies are going to realize that feeding hatred is an unsustainable idea, for hatred is unpredictable, disloyal, irrational, and it will always find a way to turn back on you.

This attack was targeted against westerners, but the attack happened in Egypt. Next time it could be Egyptian mothers, Jordanian daughters, or Saudi sons, who weren't faithful enough, pious enough, or were simply in the wrong spot at the wrong time.

That's the funny thing about cancer. Even if it wins, it dies, and the question is whether you will allow yourself to die with it.

If next time it is "Egyptian mothers, Jordanian daughters or Saudi sons", I'll be so broken up and depressed that I just won't know what to do!
