Let's not forget that Israel vs. Hezbollah is not the only armed conflict raging throughout the planet. People, innocent and not so innocent, are being killed, butchered, maimed and raped on almost every continent.

The other day I was complaining about a ticket I received while parking illegally downtown. Well, I guess other people have worse problems than that. Then I thanked God for what I had and for what I haven't lost and for all the blessings He has given me.

Then my cousin, who was with me, asked "hey what if I believe I've had a good life as well but I don't believe in God, who should I thank then?" I told him that he could thank another force, or, if he didn't believe there was another force responsible, he could thank Fate. If he didn't believe in God, another force or Fate, well he could just think about his "good life" and smile and be so happy about it that he would be willing to buy me a beer and toast that "good life" of his. He DID buy me that beer and I made a toast to him and to his good life and wished him many more years of it.
