Our Hearts Go Out To Mumbai Victims

In too many ways, 2008 has been a historically difficult year--a reality check on the growing challenges we face in this new century.

And the events that we all saw unfold in Mumbai over the past five days--with stories of cruelty, indisciminate murder, and tragedy playing out on the world stage--only make that reality check more painfully clear.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the attacks' victims, who spanned all nationalities, religions and income levels.

And may our hearts and heads come together in this new year, under our new leadership, to start moving things in a far better direction than they appear today.

Religion and religious doctrination have been the cause of millions of innocent deaths over the centuries, i.e. the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Holocaust, the Hundred Year's War, the numerous wars on the African Continent. Religion should preach love and understanding, but instead it seems to divide peoples. Fanaticism of some people of all religions promotes terrorism and mankind can't seem to overcome it.

My error. the word is 'indoctrination' and not 'doctrination'.
