No More Boundaries!

Iran's recent reaction to the "trespassing" on its waters by some British sailors reminds me of some old mountain man (my apologies to Jeni) shooting at people that wander onto his property either by mistake or on purpose. This whole concept of "my land" or "my water" or "my property" must be done away with. This earth belongs to all of us. We are all the same, each and every one of us. There may be some minor variation in skin color, place of origin, what we believe in terms of religion, and whether or not we posess certain sexual organs. But basically we are all the same. We are all human. We all have certain basic needs and, I believe, certain basic rights. Instead of differentiating ourselves along national, religious or racial lines, and hating those who do not "belong", we should understand who much the same we are. We are all in the same boat, and that boat is called Earth. We need to start getting along, sharing our resources and loving each other rather than killing each other. The people in Iran are acting like a bunch of 3-year-olds who have not learned how to share.

So Sayeth The Shack
