what were we thinking?

When the jet rose six miles high, it was clear that the earth was round and that it had more sea than land. But it was difficult to understand that the [people] on the earth found causes to hate each other, to build walls across cities and to kill. From that height, it was not clear why.

From any level it's hard to understand all the whys... Can pray more love bridges are build instead of hate and destruction.
