In 2006, more than 12,000 civilians died in the Iraq war. How many more will have to die before we can see that ‘an eye for an eye’ only kills more?

What the Buddha said is so true –

“Those who keep thinking ‘He abused me!” “He struck me!” “He oppressed me!” “He robbed me!” never still their hatred. But those who let go of such thoughts will. For in this world hatred is never still by more hatred. It is love that stills hatred. This is an eternal truth.”
