I'm No Fan Of Vandalism, But...Submitted by Jeppe on Tue, 08/12/2014 - 13:40
This post is a distraction for me, but today i saw a graffiti written on the walls of a building, next to the school when I picked up my son. And I think there may be a lesson for all of us.
Background: a few weeks ago, someone got a 100 down-votes for asking a quite loaded question.
(I always enjoy reading the most down-voted as well as the most up-voted.)
While many obviously was offended, some took the time and gave a few suggestions for further education on the matter.
Thinking there was nothing new to be heard, or learned... I did click on the video as suggested, and heard an hour of information, that was in sharp contradiction with what I have known to be true my whole adult life.
Had I seen the graffiti a few weeks ago, I would have discarded the message as complete nonsense, but today I got it.
Here is the lesson I learned and wanted to share with you:
Be patient with people, some of us are more thickheaded than others, and some of us, has been subjected to a lifelong propaganda.
The graffiti just read: FREE GAZA
And here was the clip that showed me the other (and often unheard/untold) side of the story:
PEACE, Yours truly!
