    Why?
    Because we do not speak up and let money rule.

    Did you follow the Sydney siege this week by a lone clearly mentally ill person? He died along with 2 of his 17 hostages. He had installed a Muslim flag at the coffee/chocolate shop where he conducted the siege. The siege lasted something more than 16 hours.

    Someone noticed a woman on a train while it was happening removing her hijab, so she walked up to her and offered to accompany her, telling her to put her hijab back on. Thus the hashtag #IllRideWithYou was born. People everywhere in Australia are publishing their public transport commute schedules so that Muslims can travel with them feeling safe in this moment of turbulence.

    There has been plenty of hate too, but people have been inspired by this act of moral leadership.

    Glory and honor rule the heart of Man.
    Though there are those who do not understand,
    The time is come.
    A new beginning.
    Man will go beyond his world.
    Glory and honor rule the heart of Man.
    For Man there is no rest, no ending.
    He must go on. Conquest after conquest.
    Leaving behind those who will not lend a hand.
    Glory and Honor rule the heart of Man.

    Nice.

    Here are the words of a song I wrote in my teens, called Through Other's' Eyes


    Sing a song in unity
    Clothe it in diversity
    Don't you see man's destiny
    Yearning to unfold?

    Take a walk through history
    The sounds of war a mystery
    To the ears of the innocent
    Whose bodies now lie cold.

    Don't you see what they were fighting for
    Some piece of land, some untold law
    Some fear of what might lie in store
    If the enemy did win

    But now the tide has turned
    It's time that mankind really learned
    The time for peace has come
    The work has just begun

    The time has come to love each other
    and to lend a helping hand
    To accept we all are brothers
    In the family of man

    The time has come to love each other
    And to build this world anew...
    We've nothing left to lose
    Oh the time has come
    We really can't refuse

    See the world through others' eyes
    The you might just realise
    The things we're told are really lies
    They're people just the same.

    I love your song, especially the last. I wish that all of us were able to see the world through others eyes. Now. See what we in the WEST have done in the past 1500 years to the EAST in the name of Christianity, Oil, Greed etc.,and understand the hatred they posses standing over their ruins and the dead. Now.
    Merry Xmas to you all from the Yucatan.
