Hungry Squirrels for Peace

I don’t know why this feels like a big deal, but yesterday I looked at this pic and thought, why is it that we’ll feed all manner of animals, but will spend hours defeating squirrels.

It began to feel like a metaphor. Who is all right to feed? Are there only some who are acceptable? What about refugees? Are there only some who are welcome? What about…

It’s not hard to see where this is headed.

Again we find ourselves balancing on the knife edge of judgment and judgmentalism. Judgmentalism is so damned easy. Oh, and wrong, it’s wrong.

I don’t know, I have no land and no bird feeders ergo no squirrel feeders. But we where do we draw lines about Peace in all this?
