Perhaps one of the solutions to this terrible situation is prayer. Remember what the astronauts told us; that when you are in space, there are no national boundary lines visible? Perhaps we can cross them with universal prayer? It couldn't hurt to try in all languages, in all faiths. There are radical elements in all faiths; most followers are more in tune to charity, compassion, and forgiveness. Sheer numbers of prayers might tip the balance to reason.

Edgar Mitchell was one of those young, inspired astronauts. This is what he did with what he learned. The Institute of Noetic Sciences.
