My Thoughts on Current Events in Middle East

Cerebrate true democracy and human rights! But, current success we see today is merely temporal events. We should keep supporting and devoting ourselves to protecting human rights and democracy.

The words from Gust Avrakotos in the movie "Charlie Wilson's War" can remind us the non-permanency.

"We'll see," the Zen master says. When the boy falls off the horse and breaks a leg, everyone says the horse is a curse. "We'll see," says the master. Then war breaks out, the boy cannot be conscripted because of his injury, and everyone now says the horse was a fortunate gift. "We'll see," the master says again."

Without our constant efforts, we are going have more countries like Afghanistan.
