I believe the Israelis

I believe the Israelis have been wronged, but they also have a lot to apologize for. And I believe the Palestinians have been wronged, but they have a lot to apologize for, as well.

We Liberals like to think

We Liberals like to think our thoughts aren’t controlled. We pride ourselves on our independent thinking. We know we shouldn’t believe everything we read. We realize the media is skewed, we know it’s owned by a small group of people, we realize it’s biased, etc.

I believe that

I believe that in every country the people themselves are more peaceably and liberally inclined than their governments.

I believe that everything happens

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
