Crying or Very sad

This is very off topic
So listen up.

I live in London, my sister works a few minutes walk from bombed areas (everyone I know is safe)
My sisters boyfriend (a London bus driver) - was ferrying the injured to hospital by bus

My London web site is housed with the old British Library next to where the bus bomb went off

http://pages.britishlibrary.net/tooting/

What has been achieved by the bombings? Deaths, pain and fare increases.
[update: and a Brazilian shot]

One of the main reasons I am involved with Puppy is because it is pro-life, positive - a good project. It is a question of attitude. It may seem strange to relate these two areas but I believe the world is improved by good will.

The image here (meant to show the destruction of Windows)
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/Puppy104
is no longer appropriate (and probably never was)

I hope everyone is safe. If you wish to remember the dead or make a difference. Do something kind.

What will happen?

People will recognise that life is fleeting and perhaps develop more good will as a remedy to attitudes of "improving the world through mass murder"


London Lives
Smile

The failed shrapnel bombs and the shooting at Stockwell are a few stops away on the underground (or tube).

It is a very disheartening situation Sad
that a lot of good can be made of.

The British Muslim community will have to open up. People will have to learn a bit more about what their family and neighbours are up to. I am even thinking of getting a mobile phone so I can inform my family that I have been blown up by extremists (should that happen).

Really it is a question of good will. When people commit atrocities, it reflects and exposes some of our own twistings.

It may seem ridiculous to think - "what good can come of this?" but I would much rather that then be seduced by even the tiniest part of the dark side:

Quote:
"Fear is the path to the dark side.
Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.
Hate leads to suffering."


. . . as even the glove puppet Yoda knows . . .

Smile


So just doing some kind or positive act
that too has ripples

I know where I would rather be . . .

just to keep you updated - sorry it is so off topic

Once again may I say that I am happy to hear that you and your's are ok.

Let us hope that this does not continue as it is doing nothing as far as I can see except spread suspicion and doubt amongst the general population.

I enjoyed the Donkey story.

Thanks Ian,

There is an area of Islam called Sufism that is based on a more positive interpretation. Part of their teachings are transmitted through jokes.
Here is a page (that many contribute to) I started on this:

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Nasrudin

Hope you find some fun and even wisdom there Smile
