Hi friends and brothers, This is the first day in a while that I haven't posted anything on th developer's forum. For me and many other Catholics like me, this is the greatest day of the year, when we believe we were redeemed by our savior. I am saddened by all the violence that continues to occur in the birthplace of my religion. I fully understand that two other great religions eminate from the same place. I have friends who are Jewish, Moslim, Hindu, Budhist, Agnostic and Atheist. I respect their beliefs and would never attempt to impose my own on theirs (even though my Church has made that mistake in the past). I think that it is wonderful that JavaRanch attracts so many different people from so many different cultures. On this Good Friday, I pray for peace. I pray that we all learn to live together as the only other alternative is unacceptable. I hope I have not offended anyone with this but I believe that Peace starts with me. Peace be with you all, Michael Morris
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. - Ernst F. Schumacher
