The West, The First World, call ourselves what we will, has completely lost perspective. This is going on in America, we're tearing ourselves apart socially and politically in the UK... meanwhile in Aleppo, Mosul, Yemen, Gaza, The West Bank, Zimbabwe... I need not go on.
Next Sunday is Remembrance Day when we rightly remember those who have died for our peace and security. But we'd do better to remember them through our actions, domestically and internationally, every day instead of squandering our hard fought freedom and at the same time remember those who have no voice - in our own countries and around the World - for whom silence is not a choice for two minutes each year.
We enrich ourselves and others when we build bridges diminish everyone when we put up barriers.
