Columns: Spreading good instead of bad would elminate some goofiness

The world’s sympathy goes out to those who were slaughtered in the Paris massacre.

The world’s sympathy goes out to those who were slaughtered in the Paris massacre.

It makes me wonder what drove those who killed and wounded so many to do this disastrous deed.

Why did they do it?  What strategy was behind this murder?

Do terrorists have rational strategies?

So many questions are being asked, but will we ever know the reasons why?

What is it that twists a person’s mind to believe they were doing the right thing by ravaging innocent folks with bullets?

There are a lot of things I don’t understand about this kind of terrorism — some of those committing this act were from France.

Why would you want to end your life by doing this ugly deed upon your fellow countrymen?

Why does the world breed so many of those who believe the wrongs they are doing are right and those who don’t go along with their brainwashed suggestions are wrong?

It does not matter what country we live in, there are always going to be those who do wrong.

I know this is not as shocking as a ‘Paris’ debacle but it is something that rankles me big time.

During the recent Royal Canadian Legion Poppy campaign throughout the country there were some jerks who stole poppy donation boxes from retail outlets helping to sell them.

How low do you have to go before you grab one of these small donation boxes and then take off?

If these jerks are caught I would like to see them put before a large legion assembly and have to explain why they did this stupid act.

Then, make them work in keeping some of our cenotaph’s clean, plus a donation to the legion.

Why can’t we spread good as fast as bad these days? And, perhaps, we would not wake up daily to read headlines about a lot of goofy stuff going on.

Fortunately there are more good dudes around the world than bad characters.
