Picking your battles

This is kinda a natural extension of my last post.  Let's face it, there are literally thousands of "battles" going on right now.  Hundreds of wars..... war on women, war on drugs, war on terrorism, war on children, war on our elders, war on.... well I think you get the point.

There is absolutely NO way that any one individual can battle in all these wars.  I think you'd agree.

So pick your battles but don't get mad or upset when someone else picks other battles to fight.

I understand: humans just cannot treat other humans, humanely.  Humans just cannot help trying to control other humans.  Humans just cannot seem to stop trying to gather power to themselves over other humans.

Yet that is the answer.  Just each individual human treat each individual human .... humane.

What does it mean to be "humane"?

Here are some things that I think fall into that category:

- show love
- show respect
- allow dignity
- give a helping hand
- protect the innocent
- teach
- learn
- be kind
- develop real relationships
- concentrate on the good parts
- do not tolerate evil

Feel free to add others since this is by no means a complete list.
