A Few Possibilities

I try not to check the social media, news channels and papers, online or otherwise, following the sad incidents. Year after year, country after country, it is becoming unbearable. We see and read daily about hundreds of people impacted, but the truth is that there are thousands who are not even mentioned anywhere. They are part of communal wars, riots, religious outbursts, resistance wars etc.

I started looking for reasons. I found them convoluted.  I searched for trigger points, but they look like triggers caused by a big bang phenomenon and not sequential. It will not be easy to pin point the causes now. Some of these disturbances have history since centuries.

And if I cannot influence change in a big way, there are still few small and reasonable things to do.

Time and again, it is proven that mindful living, empathy and respect for others cannot be a wrong choice.
