Each time I travel away and return I realize that I am so grateful for my home and country! Yet we live in a global community. What each of our countries say and do, can affect other lands.
Not one of us is perfect. No one on the planet is perfect. From history and faith, only two perfect human beings: Jesus Christ & his Mother Mary ever existed on this planet!
How can we get along better? How can we support each other and not go broke or weaken our image or security?
When France backed out of its energy agreement with Iran, did anyone think they would just take it lying down? They have to develop other energy sources to sustain the Iranian people. Do the photos depict a nuclear power plant? If yes, they picked a great location, within the mountains. We'll have to supervise them regularly now!
Being able to forgive the faults & weakness of ourselves and others isn't an easily learned lesson. It isn't a facile practice either. Yet it has become a significant criteron for global peace.
Some countries' actions will require an immediate response. Some will
require a reprimand or sanctions or even global retaliation. We must find a way to forgive and forget!
