An invitation to Australia
It is hard to restrain our anger at what is happening in Iraq, but we must if we want a civilized world for our children to grow up in. It will take time, but we must find a way to build international justice, as your Editor has said.
The Law of the Jungle, where the powerful do as they please, can only be defeated with calmness and clear heads, not with guns.
The UN must be re-built from the wreck it is right now. We of the small nations must all work together without thought that we are Muslims, Christians, Hindu, Buddhist or even atheist. What is important is that we should all seek justice not only for ourselves but for the others of the world.
One of the huge benefits of world travel is that you get to see how other people live, and come to recognize that the way YOU live is not the only way, nor even is it likely to be the BEST way.
I invite you – or any of your readers- to come and live with me for a month to see how I live. If you can get here to Australia, I will be honored to have you stay with my family for a month.
Only by learning to respect each other can we move forward in peace.
