why not?

As everybody knows, Leonard Cohen and I say, horrible, unspeakable and ugly things happen during war. Many turn to god, some don't and many  cant understand how somebody couldn't, during war time... Well I'm here to express my theory.
        Whether you believe or don't believe in god during war time, sometimes it depends on who you started out as before. For example you might be an atheist  and end up as a believer, vi ca- versa. Why? because for believers when you see yours friends die, when you see guts lying around, it all makes you question how god could let things like this happen? how? why?. For non-believers its the other way around, when they come and experience war, they realize how small and vulnerable they are. Who can they look up to? who can protect them if not themselves? It all points to god, it gives them hope that they are now being protected by a guardian angel, from above.

No peace in the middle east

Many people around the world believe and have faith that there will be peace in the Israeli-Arab conflict, personally... I'm not sure that will happen.
       To prove my theory, there are historic facts like the war between Lebanon and Israel in 2000, when the UN forced Israel to move back from Lebanon, shortly after Hezbollah soldiers attacked and in 2006, Israel was forced to go back and fight another war. There are also historical events like the six day war, in which Syria, Egypt, Palestine, etc attacked Israel. Also later, in the 1970's, Egypt counter-attacked, trying to wipe out the Israelis.
       In general Israel is opened to any immigrants from any Arab country but yet still, bombs and gunfights are still going. Peace negotiations aren't going to help anyway because each sides claims that Israel belongs to them, only one is right. I hope one day both sides make an agreement but for now the only thing that's gonna be popping for possibly the next several decades, is the the same thing that has been going on for thousands of years, in Israel, war,war,war.

       MS51 is a generally nice school, with nice people.... well... that depends on who you are.
       For some reason Ive noticed a heavy concentration of negative energy among my classmates and peers. Mean things have been said, sometimes for really no reason, except maybe to provoke or to bring attention to an individual. Well to understand where this all came from I thought about the usual nature of how people turn nasty, eventually I hit a conclusion. Usually all this happens depending on how a person is treated in school or even at home. For example peers of a person might jokingly say something rude to his/her friend, now even though its a joke the person might take seriously, this might break down his/her self-confidence and it could possibly send them into tears, I don't know about you but Ive seen it happen. This of course causes a negative response, which spreads like Mel Gibson's stereo types.
       People still have to keep all these negative things in their minds and obviously few have conquered this technique. Oh yeah and I really try not to hurt any ones feelings but If I ever I have... I'm sorry... I'm apologizes.
