Minbari Mondays, and Two Lessons from “War Without End, P2” (B5:s3e17) on Empathy & Trust

       This week’s lessons:

          1.  Sometimes empathy requires giving the benefit of the doubt to an old enemy.

          2.  Sometimes one must trust the script writer to tie up all the loose ends!

          This episode is full of ties to the ultimate fates of both Londo Mollari and G’Kar, which we see hints of now, but will only be able to fully understand much later.

   My favorite line is that knockout ending:

“I am called Valen.”


  Let’s learn to build community and trust, which we need in spades to solve our current problems, please.  

We, as a society and globally, really can Do Better.




Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa.

I come in peace, I am your friend.



Action Prompts:

1.)  Share your thoughts on how we Human Beings might start to build a more fully inclusive society for all of us, and how this episode of Babylon 5 could help that process.

2.) Write a book, story, post or tweet that uses these thoughts.
