Things have calmed down for the time being. Prime Minister Siniora asked for a moment of silence for all those that died in the 4-day conflict. I am going to take it a step further. Where does violence take us? This is the perfect example of where violence can take us. And, when violence becomes an option it is hard to turn back. This is what happened in Lebanon this week. Thankfully, the situation is calmer. Temporarily at least. So I propose a moment of silence to reflect on the conflicts that exist in our lives and how we can address them non-violently.
