Will our violence ever come to an end?
Violence is hard to understand. There are countless creatures in the animal world that live more peacefully than many humans. Yet we have a much bigger brain. We have moral awareness and power to reflect and make decisions. We also have a conscience.

Moral code affects behaviour
In an article in the Wall Street Journal entitled "Why we lie", Dan Ariely, author of the new book The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty, overturns popular modern-day ideas about morality.1 He recounts how experiments he and colleagues performed at the University of California showed conclusively that cheating does not correspond to the established rationalist model of human behaviour. That is, the idea that people lie and cheat if the perceived benefits (say, money) outweigh the costs (the possibility of getting caught and punished). Instead, Ariely's team found that simply reminding people of the 10 Commandments had a dramatic effect on their behaviour.

Do miracles still happen today?
Many people don't believe miracles occur, explaining them away as coincidences. In the past, I did the same, until I began to recognise God's fingerprints on my life, I remembered past trials, including a serious illness that sent me to the hospital when I was only seventeen. It wasn't until ten years later, after another surgery, that a different doctor told me I was lucky to be alive. Lucky? I don't think so. Blessed? Yes, that's more like it. A miracle? You bet!

Finding rest in times of pain
No one is immune to suffering in this world. We will all go through some form of pain or suffering at any point in our lives. A life cut short because of a deadly disease, motoring accidents or when a natural disaster strikes, depression, unemployment, broken relationships and the list could go on. It is a well-known fact that pain is a part of life.
