A Talking Horse
A jogger running down a country road is startled as a horse yells at him, “Hey! Come over here, buddy!”
The jogger is stunned but runs over to the fence where the horse is standing and asks, “Were you talking to me?”
The horse replies, “Sure was. Man, I’ve got a problem. I won the Kentucky Derby a few years ago and this stupid farmer bought me. Now all I do is pull a plow, and I’m sick of it. Why don’t you run up to the house and offer him $5,000 to
buy me. I’ll make you some money ’cause I can still run.”
The jogger thinks to himself, “Boy, a talking horse!” Dollar signs start appearing in his head. So he runs to the house and finds the old farmer sitting on the porch. The jogger yells to the farmer, “Hey, old man, I’ll give you $5,000 for that broken-down old nag you’ve got in the field.”
The farmer replies, “Son, this has happened before. You can’t believe anything that horse says. He’s never even been to Kentucky.”
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
- Romans 13:9
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.

In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
