Hey Hey Hey! So I told you about how all my posts are too long right? (Example: happy Canadian Boxing day was the War and Peace of blogging posts) So i'm try to shorten them up a bit! And if they get too long feel free to skip the boring parts. I just type whatever comes to my head and it's not always fun-tertaining. Hehe. Word play. Gota love it.
Anyways, today i Finished the Kite Runner, a book written by Khaled Hosseini. It was a beautifull moving and inspiring book. But it raised a lot of questions and i'm am now going to ask these questions, and then promptly answer myself. And no i will not raise my hand so ha.
My biggest question is why. Why? Why is there war? Why is there hate? What is so wrong with us that we can't be diplomatic, caring? Why is it that humans suffer while other humans cause suffering?
My answer? Because we are human. Time has made us learn, has made us forget, has made us want. WE have free will and one must wonder if humans abuse that privilege. Why is there war? There is war because not everything can be settled peacefully. War is not a tragedy that is driven soley by power. It is driven by passion, and passion can not be dettered. When you get an ambitious person, who feels they alone know just what the world needs, then they will fight like no tomorrow to get it, and often time there is no tomorrow. NO matter who they might hurt or what might happen, they have a plan and want it bad enough. A better way to explain might be by example.
Think of it this way: What if you had the answer to solving every ounce of human suffering on this planet? What if you knew exactly what to do to give everyone happiness, to make every one and everything whole. Now what if the only way you could do it was by becoming a terrorist to your own country? What if you could only do it by causing more suffering than there ever was, knowing that when it was done, all would be beautiful. Would you believe the outcome justifies the means? The night is darkest just before the dawn. Would you be both the night, and the dawn?
Thats the way Hitler thought, that's the way terrorists think. Is all the suffering they caused justifiable? To them it was.
Why is there hate? This answer to me is simple. Without hate, love would have no meaning. If everyone loved everyone, who could truly hold a special place in your heart? There would be know depth to the human soul, no balance. It would be great if we could all love each other, but then, how could we truly love, when there is nothing else to do?
Well dang! i wanted a short post and look what i did. This post is so huge it deserves it's own continent! I'll have to buy rename "Awesome bloggers who commented on my blog and deserve to have an island in their nam" island, to giant post island. What an inconvenience.
So now i'll leave you to ponder those imponderables, and i'll go get the paperwork for renaming the island.
See ya later alligators
In a while crocodile!
Until next time little limes!
Hasta la vista...oh crap what rymes with vista? o whatever.
