Too many emotions

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Matthew 5:43-48

I am grateful that the war in the middle east has taken a big step forward but my heart hurts to even think about rejoicing for someone's death.  I'm also really concerned that there will now be another attempted attack on American soil and that anyone traveling overseas is in danger. 

I know this is a childish request, but I wish that war could just go away and we could all love each other as Jesus loved us.
