Of Hawks and Doves

The Red Tailed Hawk is large. He stands up to 25 inches tall with a 4 foot wing span. I sat on the deck and watched him circle.
Much larger than the Cooper's Hawk that comes hunting in the backyard.

My friend, the dove, sat with me on the deck.
The hawk was no concern of hers.
I watched her blink! I did not know doves could blink!

This is the 132nd BLOG I've posted this comment on today:

As a veteran of Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq...over these last few months...I've wondered to myself, "Is it possible to reduce the amount of hatred and violence in our world?"

Last week, before going to sleep, I began asking myself a lot of WHAT IF questions.

The central theme behind my thoughts are neither anti-war or pro-religion. My words are not meant to inspire flag-burning or political protest signs.

Basically, unless someone and everyone start talking about Peace...

Even if it's just for two short minutes...

It's possible that an unstoppable firestorm of hatred may one day burn its way across our entire planet.

Instead of pointing out those differences which separate mankind...

It's my hope that the humanity within all of us will somehow prevail...
