Watching the BBC news this morning one of the reporters commented saying that the situation is beginning to get complicated. Beginning, I thought. Man where has she been? A lot of people have been asking me what is going on over there, they have wanted my take on things. Perhaps it is because I have spent a small amount of time in that area of the world. Perhaps it is that they just wanted to talk with someone about this nonsensical mess. My take on things is that they really are complicated. You see it’s hard to say anything more than that when your in my situation. I have dear friends in both countries. I get a glimpse of each side of the story and both and neither make sense to me at the same time. It reminds me of a story in the bible where this angel shows up to this warrior and the warrior asks the angel, “are you for us or against us”, and the angel simply says no.
It’s real easy to have a strongh opinion when you are just talking about ideas. When it crosses the relm of ideas and comes down to people that you know, and love, it is quite another thing.
