Violence and You

To me, violence is because of hopelessness. As part of our nature, when we humans feel that we have nothing else to do or that we are obligated to act so, we turn to violence. At first glance, all the terrorism, murders or attacks may seem quite simple with this explanation. However there is another aspect. Why do we feel hopeless? Why are we forced to do something that we don't want to do? I think this is the great dilemma. As we consider that there is a group or authority which causes violent behaviour, we wonder who makes them so.
What about starting with yourself? You or me might be the ones who make our friends, next-door neighbour or relatives hopeless because of our words or treatment towards them. But remember, the sooner we realize this, the healthier our relationships become and the more aware we are, and the better our environment becomes.
