Terrorism and violence have existed – in one form or another – as long as humans have existed, and will continue to exist so long as we choose to strike out physically instead of communicating with one another. One has only to look at the many billions of dollars being spent by countries around the world on protection against invasion of any sort, to see that we humans have a tremendous fear of being attacked without warning. That fear manifests in all sorts of ways besides terrorism though: illness, accidents and injuries are but a few.
So long as we hold onto grudges against those who have harmed either us or our loved ones, so long as we feel the need for revenge, so long as we feel the need to control one another, terrorism and violence will continue to exist. These horrors are not caused by the devil – they are caused by our own negative thoughts, attitudes and emotions. That means that we – and only we – have the power, indeed the responsibility, to change the world.
