WHEN IT COMES TO PHYSICAL CONFLICT, POLICE ACTION, OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED WARS, UNOFFICIAL WARS, AND PROXY WARS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PRAISE OUR HEROES, DEVELOP LIFE-LONG COMRADERIES, RECOGNIZE SACRIFICE, AND COMMEND EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP WITHOUT SUCH HISTORICAL VIOLENCE, LOSS, DESTRUCTION, AND BLOODSHED. PEACE BE WITH ALL WHO ARE AT WAR.

Avoiding battle does NOT mean: devaluing extensive, multifaceted, coordinated military intelligence, or naively believing that diplomacy is a tool to be used in isolation, or underestimating the value of political will, or undervaluing economic strength, or underspending tax dollars on military equipment and personnel, or being unprepared for physical conflict Charles Tadros, M.D. July 24,Continue reading “WHEN IT COMES TO PHYSICAL CONFLICT, POLICE ACTION, OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED WARS, UNOFFICIAL WARS, AND PROXY WARS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PRAISE OUR HEROES, DEVELOP LIFE-LONG COMRADERIES, RECOGNIZE SACRIFICE, AND COMMEND EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP WITHOUT SUCH HISTORICAL VIOLENCE, LOSS, DESTRUCTION, AND BLOODSHED.

A WAY TO FEEL DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR UNWANTED CHANGE IS FOR US TO CHOOSE TO ADD (lessons, experiences, people, growth, costs, pains) TO OUR LIVES. OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE TOO SAD AND TOO PAINFUL TO CONSIDER THESE CHANGES AS LOSSES OR AS DISASTERS.

ALL OF US WILL EXPERIENCE SIGNIFICANT, CUMULATIVE, LOSS IN OUR LIVES. I ASK THAT WE ADD (our losses, pains, grief, and lessons, as well as our empathy, support, joy, and gratitude) TO OUR LIVES. I ASK THAT WE ENLARGE AND ENRICH OUR LIVES, RATHER THAN IGNORE, DODGE, AND DENY, LEADING US TO BECOME EVEN MORE ISOLATED, DEPRESSED, OVERWHELMED AND DESPONDENT.
