Dear myLot friends in India, especially in Mumbai, I'm so sorry. You're suffering at the hands of people filled with hatred, who feel that it's OK to just wipe others off the face of Earth. It isn't OK. It can never be OK. You don't deserve this suffering, and nobody else does, either. If there's someone you disagree with or dislike, just stay away from them. It will never be OK for you to do the work of God and decide others can't share the planet with you. We've all been victimized. My prayers go out to all of you in Mumbai and everywhere that hatred has taken over our humanity. Can you ever forgive?

I hope these people would learn how to forgive and live at peace with others. My prayer goes to those people affected.

Why is it that every time there is a bombing, terrorist attack, these Islamic militants always present? Why that they love these kind of killing people? How can they convince others to join their faith if they always if not sometimes involved this kind of action? My prayer for those who are victimized by these terrorist militants. There is no safe place in the world today. Terrorist are there to spread the wings of evil.

Why because the corrupt,immoral,beastly politicians nurture these creatures to be in power to hood wink the people and to fatten themselves.Is there a difference between a terrorist organization and a Government which supports them?

Most of these peole have been taught to hate from birth. They've also been taught that this life is a waste, except as it prepares them for an afterlife they seem unable to resist. A friend who had to travel in Iraq told me her cab driver told her she has to be careful, because he'd be guaranteed a place in Heaven with a harem waiting on his every desire if he would just kill her! How can they think this is the right thing to do? Sometimes people do the "eye for an eye" idea, but they usually get it a little wrong. Scripture says to take NO MORE than an eye for an eye -- not a whole life! And what about the bidding to shape weapons into plowshares to enhance their communities? We need to shake things up and get ourselves out of this morass or there won't be much of the world left! Teach everyone tolerance. Make sure everyone knows it's best just to coexist in harmony!

We have to move on and make things different from these horrible things so that others will do the same. But this is one of the sign that the end is near, so stead fast forward and be vigilant in whatsoever happen in our everyday life. We can not guarantee our life in the hands of this terrorist activities they are around us.

Hi Cobra my friend, I feel the way you do of course. I am so concerned about our friends here on mylot that are trapped in the middle of this hate and destruction. I pray for their safety and all those around them. Where will this kind of action end? It is all so disheartening. Take care sweetie. xoxox leenie

This feeling of helplessness is horrible! Newscasters said this morning that they've been hearing "chatter" about another hit on New York! What can we do? Are people who want everyone to be as happy as they can be just passe`? I never want to give up. There must be something we can do. Prayer and good will aren't doing it anymore. The warmth of our friends is so much more important than ever in this uncertain world! XOXO Joanne

Joanne, What can we do? I think we just have to keep reminding people that we are all living in a war zone. War isn't just in Iraq or India. War is a potential threat to us all at anytime. It seems that since 9/11 most people just pulled that blanket over their heads again and believe it's done. They won't even listen to reality. Until we are struck again, they will continue to live in denial. So Sad but so true. xoxoxo leenie

I'm glad you brought this up for it could happen anywhere in the world, including the USA. The negative energy that this lets loose in the world can only be beaten by the positive energy we send to the situation. Blessings

There has to be a way for Good to overtake these sects. That way can't involve our young people giving up their lives. No matter who does it, killing is wrong. Even those of us who claim no religion must pray fervently to bring these murderers to their senses. Not long ago, there was a discussion in which a cuple of young people were saying that 9/11 was ancient history, so we should let it go already and stop all the lamenting. Well, maybe that helps the terrorists. Maybe we've brought at least some peope to the point that they just don't want to hear about it anymore. It's certainly not gone away!

India's fears might be relieved for a while, but we know that, if we can't do anything soon, it'll happeen again there, and heere in the US, and throughout the world until, one day, we're just extinct! Throughout the world, we must join together to pray, to try to teach loving kindness and tolerance, and to find a way to coexist. Earth is too small a planet for these horrors to continue!
