Choosing Wisely, the Internal Struggle

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 16/11/2015 Mimo Khair

My daughter asked me after hearing of the sad events caused by terrorism in Beirut and Paris the last 2 days: "why do humans terrorize other humans?" Questions like this always get us into a journey of search for the truth, for reason, for sanity and for an explanation that can offer settlement, even if it was short-lived.

We are given a choice, the moment we were born to be as good or as bad as we want to be. We battle with our own morality throughout our lives here on this planet. We seek out desperately that bit of cool blue logic to give us strength to choose wisely.
I posted several 'pray for Paris' tributes on social media today and I was caught by one comment from someone saying that "if prayer helped, then the world would already be a better place". But do we just give up hope in the face of an uncertain future? What kind of world are our children inheriting?
