Jack’s Winning words 4/6/16
“The only alternative to co-existence is co-destruction.” (Nehru) There’s been some scary talk lately about the use of nuclear weapons. This world is better served by leaders who seek ways to co-exist with diversity than to work toward eradicating any way but “our” way. In any relationship there has to be give and take (bargaining) to make it work. Have you grown up in a family? Even God bargains…“If you will be my people, I will be your God.” ;-) Jack
FROM MT IN PENNSYLVANIA: Thank you for this, Jack. Every little expression of sanity helps! ====JACK: Once a preacher, always a preacher.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: It is scary...I remember when Dr. Oppenheimer, who helped develop the atomic bomb, said he couldn't sleep nights, thinking of the repercussions possible with misuse of this atomic energy. We 'll either have to co-exist, or the world will be blown apart. And if radical leaders of small nations gain this power, they may not be interested in bargaining! Prayer, and trust in God, remain our options. What will the world of our great-g.kids be like??!====JACK: "He's got the whole world in his hands."
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: We don't want our children and grandchildren or anyone for that matter to have air raid drills like we did in school. We must learn respect for each other across the board. God loves us all.====JACK: Enough with the inflammatory rants! A friend of mine in Minneapolis sent this..."When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
