Unfortunately this is the condition of the entire world and will be it’s fate unless everyone realizes that Jesus truly is the savior of the world. I am alarmed at not only those that cannot see this, but will not see it even when it’s self-evident. We must love once another and treat once another as we wish to be treated and place God first place in our lives. Only then will this kind of behavior stop.
Not quite my views on life, but similar (we follow the same, but in different ways I guess). My personal view is ‘each to their own’. As long as what I/we do does not hurt the next person, then who cares… and yes, why can’t we all live together 😦
I have been thinking about this a lot – I am sad too. For Turkey and our world. Be safe-my thoughts are with you.
Thank you Tiare
So sorry . . . hope peace will come. Thanks for liking my Solidarity post . . . nice to be in solidarity with my blogging community, too. K
So sad….(っ- ‸ – ς)
Very, very sad, indeed. May peace prevail.
I hope so, I really do.

I thought of you when I heard the news…such a terrible thing. Words cannot express my sorrow…thank you for the beauty to bring to such a ugly and tragic world.
Peace to you all. Just peace.
Thank you. That’s what most of us want.
My thoughts are with you Uncle Spike. Your posts generally are of a beutiful place, both physical and the state of mind you portray. The senseless violence against innocents is incomprehensible. M 😦
I could fill post after post of the darker side, but it’s been a conscious decision from the start to portray the positive, but sometimes I just have to. Political blogging here is another story, and ending up behind bars is not going to help my family 😦
My heart goes out to the people of Turkey. Be safe, dear Uncle. Best wishes for you and your family.
Thank you Linda. Friends of ours drove 9 hrs to attend the peace rally, arriving 30 minutes later than originally intended, and 30 mins after the bombs – not their time.
I thought of you Spike when I first heard the news. This was very sad news indeed. I’m so very sorry for you and your country.
Thank you Joanne… it’s been a gradual move over a few years and is accelerating if anything 😦
Unfortunately we are seeing an escalation in racist here and it makes me both angry and sad.
Just so needless. Here it is not based on race or ethnicity per sae, but deep rooted national polarisation that is fueling what is fast becoming civil war in the east, and dominating everyday life, politics, the judiciary, military, police, education and most other communities themselves.
That is really sad to hear Spike. I hope it doesn’t deteriorate any more than it already has.
It almost certainly will do I’m afraid. There is very little to stop it now.
I know it might seem trite but 😦 pretty will sums it up.
So sorry, Spike, can’t “like” this one.
Very sad news, keep safe.
Thank you Charlotte
Thought of you when I heard the news.
We need about 150,000 tough cowboys over here to go kick some butt and bang their flaming heads together John. As to whichever side (and there are many) is to blame (which may not be what is reported), what sort of mentality can justify slaughter of another 100 (almost) non-combatants, especially after we lost 33 youngsters in July??
Wow, what a powerful post–it really struck me emotionally. Take care and be safe.
Thank you. It’s a dreadful time and breaks my heart too
Be safe. 🇹🇷
I will never understand hate
so utterly destructive and needless Fred
I am sure it makes God weep
there seems no end to this stuff.it all so shocking and terrible…. keep safe you and your familyx
Thank you Gill. That’s a few hundred since July 😦
Sorry to hear that. Be safe.
Thankfully we weren’t over that way this week.
That is sad and scary.
Terrible news, so sorry.
Not happy, not good. It is sad and scary. May peace prevail and this madness cease. we are all one..
When it is disparate parts of a single country, it is especially scary yes; civil strife/war is somehow worse in that it destroys the very fabric of the collective ‘nation’
I too am very concerned for the destruction and loss of lives in our world today. It’s unstable and hearts are callous.. May you and yours be protected from harm..
That’s all we can hope for, yes. Thank you
There is no way, indeed, that one can be thinking of a happy place when that happens.
Feel sad and sorry to read about the blasts. We are also victims of such acts of terror. I could never understand how anyone can take lives of so many innocent people.
Time and time again it seems… we lost 33 youngster in July too 😦
I won’t post a ‘like’ as it doesn’t seem appropriate….these are worrying times, indeed
Agree on boıth counts Sue, and thank you
So sorry to hear! I’ve been following the news on CNN. It’s so sad indeed. My heart goes out to all the people of Turkey.
Thank you Regina, kind words
You wonder just how and when all this hatred will stop
I don’t know… I can’t see a happy ending here for many a year
Nor me….very sad
Oh, my goodness! Just break the heart!
The world of hate and its aftermath of death is numbing some of us. Not me. Not you. Peace, brothers and sisters.
Thank you. Be safe.
I don’t know what to say either, Uncle Spike. Thinking of you and yours!
All over the world it’s a sad place…many are losing their life unnecessary …even here in Australia and many other parts of the world…we are all brothers and sisters …it’s a shame religion stops us from this realisation instead segregates us all .. I send love to all in Turkey and also to the rest the world who experience loss of life …
Wise words; if only others shared that view. We lost 33 youngsters a while back in July in another similar bombing, as well as others. The regularity and scale is escalating :(.
So sorry to hear this, Uncle Spike! My thoughts are with you & yours…
Thank you Paula x
