Love Thy Neighbor

World peace is not a promising goal. Everywhere around the world acts of hate and violence are performed on a daily basis. Living by a golden rule of treating others as you would like to be treated, is wishful thinking when reading the news. The ethical ideal of "Love Thy Neighbor" is an ideal hope, especially when compared to the recent occurrence in Egypt.

On February 1, 2012 many soccer fans in Egypt joined together to enjoy a game. Individuals from citizens, to public law makers were trapped in an act of unexpected violence. As soccer fans desperately tried to flee from people of the opposing team from being attacked, a tiny exit was shut by police from allowing individuals to exit. Because of the "death trapped" door many people were crushed, stabbed and killed. What started out to be a moment of enjoyment at a soccer game turned into the death of 74 people. "Love Thy Neighbor" was an ethical idea that was ignored and is daily.
