My will be done?

Right and wrong. Black and white. Yes and no.All or nothing. These expression describe some of the polarized attitudes one member of the Sentinel team observed one day when our staff was looking at important news issues of the moment.

As we thought further; we noted stark divisions over the war in Iraq, as well as how countries should respond to attacks around the world. We saw people far apart on issues such as who should be the next US president and whether or not outsourcing is good for the economy. True, people have always held passionate views throughout history. But we wondered, Is the landscape destined to become like one big talk show, in which extremists on every issue butt heads without ceasing—and without any inkling of seeing things from any other perspective than their own? A daily sampling of the headlines might provoke a "yes" response.
