Words to live by

Dear Editor,

For those who cannot seem to grasp how world events are unfolding, here is a simple explanation from Mo Ti (4th century B.C.):

“Those who love others will be loved in return. Do good to others and others will do good to you. Hate people and be hated by them. Hurt them and they will hurt you. What is hard about that?”

Now, does that explain events of 9/11 and why following the Israeli model of attacking in the name of defense only leads to more need for defense? If not, read Mo Ti again. It isn’t all that difficult to understand – really!
