it will be over.

This is not some uncontrollable disease, it is something completely in the control of humanity.

There are billions of things in this world which we cannot control, which can also kill people, but here we are blowing each other up.

2. But, but, my mother-in-law wants revenge...
She's still upset about that navy seal who was killed on that flight by terrorists 20 years ago.

My husband is trying to explain to her that the concept of revenge is part of what propagates war and more violence. But she isn't getting it.

6. I try to whittle things down to my humble existence.
If you tried to take or oppress it,...I'd rebel. But, my neighbors may "pay the piper" to maintain their humble existence.

Kinda' sucks how that game works, HUH!
