Change is in the Air

I’ve changed!  I’m not sure when it happened but I’ve changed, and it took the death of an "evil dictator" to realize it.

Finding out about the capture and execution of Muammar Gaddafi last week filled me with sadness, not glee.  Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t sympathetic to his regime or manner of leadership.  Quite the opposite.  However, I found myself filled with sadness that there are still people on Earth that are so self-interested and self-centered that they can’t care for the people they supposedly lead.

I feel sad for people who hate, and can only love their small circle of family and supporters.  It must be Hell on Earth.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
