“Everyone speaks of how far the human race has advanced, yet we refuse to acknowledge the fact that we still unnecessarily and inexcusably condone the use of violence and destruction as a justifiable means of conflict resolution.” —Thomas W.P. Slatin

    I may sound weird but fact is as a race, WE FIND BEAUTY IN CHAOS. That is pretty much a fact However the same hands that can be violent are also the ones who can be the guiding light. Violence is not going anywhere but we can be better.

    I always say let peace leads and I know everyone get to understand that peace is a better weapon than violet that is destructive.

    Nice quote from you, Tom. Violence doesn’t help much rather it creates more room for hatred and openings for war. Nice pic..

    In my opinion the human race hasn’t advanced much. We will only be truly advanced when we realize world peace.

    The wars seriously need to stop. At this rate we are no different from animals.

    It’s sad the level of violence in the world today. Sometimes it makes me feel like we are evolving backwards.

    This is absolutely true. I am of the opinion that as a species, humans are also inherently violent and antagonistic to one another in ways where rather terrible situations push them to do the ugliest of things to one another. It is pretty disheartening to say the least.

    Well stated Tom, it baffles me with the world. We are all learned but still using violent and threat than peace-talk or dialogue.

    I totally agree with you. People praise how far we’ve com in terms with technology, yet there is violence everywhere. I don’t know if we are moving forward or backward as a humanity.

    Agree with this Tom. I hope the leaders will realize this and will do something to stop it.
