Meira asks . . .

My heroine Helen Blavatsky says, “There is no religion more powerful than truth,” which is hard to refute. Truth though, is often hard to define, as is the case in the current spat going on in the Middle East at the daily cost of hundreds of lives. There are reports from Palestine, Turkey, and Iran that Israel’s latest round of slaughter, promulgated on the abduction of two of their soldiers, was preceded by Israeli abductions of a doctor and his brother from Gaza. So who started it? Not me mother! It’s s so hard to tell with children because self-preservation comes way before truth in the immature. All the attentive parent can do is to mediate and hope to limit the damage to snide kicking and hair pulling until maturity come creeping round the door. Media services though, are already mature, and should be pumping out the facts, but for citizens to expect truth, if it flies in the face of government policy and sponsor’s agenda, is to grossly overestimate one’s progeny. One has to wait, and hope, that maturity will eventually come to governments in the form of policies for peace. Any government that propagates war, in any form, is clearly a long way from maturity.

Meira’s adventures can be found at SothicPress and Smashwords.
