So how do you stop war? How many people does it take to make a war?
Are there quiet wars? How do you win a peace?

Anger is a waste of energy. I fought a small war once. No one was killed but a lot of people lost their jobs. A few death treats and one long chase. I was angry for three years. What a waste of energy. A war of video tape, lies and hidden truths.

Wars beyond political fights are whole sale murder. How do we stop this dance of mass murder?

I wish I had just one answer.

This is the answer I have come up with for me: It is better to work towards good than against evil. A journalist once asked the Dali Lama about his statements that there is some good in every situation. "How can you say that after what the Chinese have done to Tibet?" --"The resulting diaspora has spread Buddhism all over the world."
Or something like that.

I've found if you work against evil you start to become evil.

Thank you for this very good comment.

I am trying to work towards good.
