Verse from the Veda about Helping Others

Nora al-Awlaki

Nora al-Awlaki

Donald Trump, the President of the United States, had only been in office a little over a week and already authorized at least two terrorist missions overseas. In the second, it was reported that a commando style raid on a village in Yemen resulted in up to 24 innocent civilians being killed, including eight women and eight children. Among the innocent killed in the raid was Nora al-Awlaki, who was eight years old and a citizen of the United States. It was reported that she suffered for hours before dying of a gunshot wound to the neck.

I had heard that the president made a promise to kill people just like the little girl during campaign speeches leading up to the election, so he has already fulfilled his vow. The Holy Teaching of Heavenly Father and Earthly Mother is to be kind and helpful to all of the family. Countries and walls separate family members, and anything that separates is wrong. If there is an interest in tasting the delights of heaven, a person must make the promise to not kill, and be kind and helpful to others, and keep it.

A person has a choice in whether to support the president or support the Holy Teaching. I choose the later and denounce and disobey the other.

Here is a verse from the Veda about helping others.

Do not abandon the promise to help,

and adherents do not kill or become angry with regret.
