That was cool Thomas! You're actually right. The line of communication should always be open. If people of the world could have talked and sat on the same table to settle their differences, we wouldn't have some of the problems that we do have in today's world.
It is the nature of some segments of human beings to scare learning about the things they don't know. We often tend to afraid from the things we are ingnorant of. But I believe we should let a reasonable mind and heart to speak out. That's where we find that we have lots in common than differences.
