    In the hearts and minds of human beings, exclusion and making people so emotional over the smallest territory cannot be anything but your own legacy; your show of managing your world as you see it. Whether it be the news that makes your countries notable and welcoming to an open or closed door for communication or, to get the whole world embroiled in -choosing a side equates to looking like an aura of not sharing, unable to find peace or, uncivilized. To be involved, to stand up would require others to become territorial; uncivilized; Is it manly to see women and children fearful, suffering and hungry? We are not born to have to choose an enemy to kill or die for.. We do not wake up having to wonder why such a small underdog versus a large country is such a threat to anyone. One merely looks at the maturity level and wisdom of the adults and wonder who is causing the continual wars and hope they find some non violent education on problem-solving. And feed the hungry with the time spent building the same battle day after day.
