Kayla Mueller, the young girl killed as she helped the besieged people of Syria, I thought would have an immediate impact. She was a humanitarian supreme and an example to all of us for our time and for all time -- the Gandhi of our era. She cared about people she did not even know and went to lengths few of us could.
Our lives, in my opinion, count for little unless one is on the side of the poor, the dispossessed and the rejected trying to help them any way we can. Although empathy is in short supply it's something we all have the ability to cultivate if only we would.
Again, another senseless shooting of innocents and productive innocents at that at an exclusive university in this nation. When will it stop? It begins with each of us walking in the other person's shoes and asking who of us would want to trod in their path.
This story is upsetting because of the ramifications it could have at an already explosive time. Since 9/11 what have we accomplished, what war have we won, whose hearts and minds have we captured? Think on that and as one great humanitarian said "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" -- Matthew 25:40. "Go and sin no more!"-- John 8:11
