Palestine and Israel

There have been many peace talks and peace efforts with respect to issues in Palestine and Israel - for decades - and yet, so little has changed to extend the good to the all in extended ways.

One magazine highlighted the lives of 10 persons who have grown up without a parent as a result of the death and destruction that took place on that day. As I read, I reflected on three separate issues - (1)  I wonder how many thousands of persons have lost a parent worldwide as a result of the violence that has emerged in response to the violence enacted on September 11th, 2011?  If we took a toll of all the persons whose lives have been fractured by the reciprocating and repeating cycles of violence that have extended themselves to thousands of persons as retaliatory violence has been extended  - I wonder how persons would we have to interview?  How many magazines could be filled?  Has retribution made our world a better place?
