I, too, could take sides and share pictures of the violence. But being superior to no one and inferior to no one, I look at my own heart and behavior instead, and see the victim and perpetrator there. I also see a tragic, beautiful thing called the human race, traveling through space, one part galaxy, another part rock — dust, flesh, and sun combined. Whom shall I despise? Those who pull the trigger, or those who teach their children that there will always be guns in the world? Those who steal in large amounts, or those who steal in small? To be fair, would I not have to despise everyone, including myself? When was the last time you left food on your plate; took advantage of someone; were inattentive or cruel to loved ones or friends; accepted pay for less than your best work? Ask yourself. If you do, you will understand the repetitive cycle of human events. You will recognize yourself in those who are in positions of wealth and power, and in the whores and panhandlers it is so convenient to shun. No, I will not take sides. Because there is only one. It is either we or none.
