Why Does It Never Stop?

We are approaching the time of year when, if not shopping, people tend to be more friendly and in better moods. Thanksgiving. Family gatherings around bountiful tables. Even the less fortunate are usually provided with a good meal.

Christmas. Holiday music can't help but cheer. More family and food and gifts and maybe even a remembrance of what the Holiday is about. Both holidays, a mere month apart, will seem so distant but a week after when we return to normal; school, jobs, the cold streets ~ and war.

The headlines today tell us of the North Koreans attacking an island off South Korea with the promise of more. Afghanistan. Iraq. Israel vs. the Palestinians. Iran against everyone along with al Qaeda and the Taliban. Untold African nations within their own borders and without.We have the Mexican drug cartels at war with each other and anyone who happens to get in their way. We even have our own citizens at war against the TSA for stripping away one right too many.

I write about conflict far too often. I wonder what the militias are up to. I fear we haven't enough resources to handle one more. Why does it never stop? What is wrong with man that conflict must be war, killing. Death.

The biggest mystery of all, to me, is from Genesis 1:27 ~
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
How so?
