There are cheers and excitement when we take down the sorts of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Osama bin Laden using guns and explosives. How sad. It simply displays what has become the norm among humans. Removing bin Laden did not solve the problems in Afghanistan, and the death of al-Baghdadi does not remove deep seated beliefs of many who are different in beliefs and traditions.  

We seem to forget that we are children of God and should act in God-like manners.

If someone disagrees with you, just take them out of the picture. This seems to have become a creed of beliefs among many of us. Perhaps we are afraid that we may be the one at fault and should change.

God help us if we don’t find a better way to solve our differences personally, family, national and international.
