It is hard to believe that we are already one week into the ninth month of 2017. I'm still enjoying teaching in Japan. But, I'm not feeling good about the direction of my own country (USA) since the government changed in January.
I try to keep my blogs upbeat, but it is depressing to think that the world can be made less friendly. I want to see the people of the world coming together in friendship, not splitting apart.

My attitude is that we should Just Say No to Hate.
No means no.
No hate, no fighting, no war.
Enough is enough!
Let's do what we can to make the world better.

Thank you for your comments, Luci, Abhi, White Knight, Estanis, Fizzy, sanjib, usra risat, and Gerardo. I appreciate your taking the time to read and comment on my post. I really hate War, but I worry that we have someone who is emotionally immature and unstable that could start a war. I'm no fan of the North Korean regime and think Kim is also unstable. How can we do something that will stop wars and use of atomic weapons? Watching and waiting does no good, we must all contact our government officials and ask them to speak out.

Hello Mr Bob, good to see you again. I share your concern about direction of USA, I think that our problem right now is to believe that human progress is both automatic and going well.

It´s true that we are living in the most peaceful time in history, but people like Trump remind us that we must be alert to this kind of government.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

There're many who disagree with his own country's policy, laws, customs... and there're more who think like you.
Glad to read from you Mr. Bob.

Absolutely Agreed , Peace is priority.

Hello..Sorry but i don't fully agree with that. as they say If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas. sometimes war is needed for peace. Trump is against criminal elements and terrorists.

Happy to see you blogging again, Mr. BOB! I fully agree ...Trump seems to be ticking bomb :( People should be once more again friendly instead of being full of prejudice!

Thanks Dara Qino. I will be happy to be friends. I take it that you live across the Nile from Khartoum. I hope the changing climate brings more regular rain to Sudan.
