Priorities are poor

Currently, we are spending billions of dollars waging a war against terrorism, motivated by fear and an obsessive need to control. Meanwhile, children and adults in our own country are dying or suffering needlessly from untreated medical conditions due to a lack of affordable medical resources.

Some families must forfeit all their assets in an effort to treat one member’s illness. Apparently, our leaders have not realized that what we do with our minds and our time contributes to what we become. We are becoming “war mongers.” Isn’t it time we re-evaluated our priorities?
