In what is apparently a common event every hunting season, a pair of deer bucks were found dead after their horns had become locked together. I'm supposing this happens when the bucks are bucking heads in competition for a mate.

It seems to me a vivid reminder of the principle that we are all one. Our happiness is dependent upon the happiness of others and when we seek to do harm, we cannot avoid harming ourselves as well. These locked horns might be a symbol of what's happening in Iraq, what happens when individual and society clash, or even what happens between individuals. In all cases the principle is the same. We flow together and will always either contaminate or
nourish one another, the choice is ours.
