I was reading a news article about the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner over the Ukraine. The article was about how it would never be the same again in reference to Russia and that area of the world and went on to compare the recent event to the shooting of the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assassination 100 years ago sparked World War I.
Is it ever the same? Isn’t each and every day different? Things are never the same and unfortunately it seems that they just get worse. This applies to deaths by gun fire in the U.S., to politics, to the wars fostered by different religious beliefs, to migrations of people running from violence in their countries, and to global climate change.
Plan for change … it will never be the same again.
