Reader response to Prayer for Syria

Well, I am still typing with both hands. So God or Allah didn’t accept my prayer, didn’t cut off my hand for my evil request, but a couple of readers did respond with their comments and empathy.

Thank you for being so thoughtful in expressing so…. appropriately grieve for the inherently evil traits in us. This world is getting worst by the minute….

Reader C said:

It is so sad to hear of the on-going violence and senseless brutalities all over the world. Even more sad that seemingly so much continue to stem from religious differences. What’s our next generations going to be like!!

I had a serious disease in 2014 – this is old news to many readers. That near-death experience told me something. If I were a true believer in the teachings of deity and a practitioner of his or her wisdom, I would boldly say that I had been crucified and I no longer live, that I only carry on with a yearning to love and care, and be loved and cared back once in a while. But I am not that good of a person, not even a fraction of it.

As a fellow human being, who has been “hiding” in relative comfort in North America most of my life, I feel uneasy about this comfort. I feel guilty. What can an ordinary man like me do? What can we collectively do to make the world a little better?
