Just a thought

I came across this thought for the day while looking for something else entirely, such is the serendipity of the world wide web:
" The average woman would rather be beautiful than smart because the average man can see better than he can think. "
I couldn't possibly comment!

I'd like to hope that the men and women at the forefront of politics in the Middle East are not average by that definition and are thinking very hard and very creatively about how to establish peaceful co-existence for all the inhabitants of that troubled region. It's fairly easy for me to look at history and say "If only they hadn't done that" or "If they'd done that then this wouldn't have happened" but given the situation today I have no idea how to get out of it. The leaders involved need to have the courage and the faith to take steps which no-one else can force upon them. All we can do is pray, hope and support those who are managing to get humanitarian aid to those in need.
