Yet, there I stood shaking hands with a Russian soldier in an expression friendship that I hope will be repeated many times. For the hopes, the laughter, the dreams and even the tears of our people are indistinguishable. And, the Russians have triumphed over communism, our common nemesis, which has allowed the revival of Christianity, their religion since the year 988 AD. So, the vast majority of our people can pray together through Christ as our common intercessor.
Therefore, it is only natural that I humbly invite representatives of both great nations to please kindly consider these thoughts before making public accusations, which may lead to armed conflict: Before making the slightest innuendo of the other’s actions or intent, would it not be best to meticulously research the ice cold facts? Once the facts have been assembled and analyzed with open fair-mindedness, would it not be in the best interest of the entire world to contact the appropriate diplomat with the results in order to then request an official response? From this point, would it not be truly in the interest of global safety to proceed with diplomatic standards in private?
Making accusations to the international media, however, without a scintilla of supporting evidence before the above process has been has been exhausted, or at least exercised once, may be viewed by the rest of the world as colossal recklessness and the very antithesis of diplomacy. I feel those soldiers with whom I served in the army and my Russian friend whom I met in Red Square would agree.
Now, I am asking for our great nations and those who represent them to agree. Let us seek friendship. It shall be so easy to find. Let us seek Beautiful Peace, for she awaits, gazing in your eyes with an olive branch in her hand, outstretched to you.
