Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

Here Sidd the Travelin Buddha is shown a short ways away from the flags commemorating each of the victims of the 9-11 attacks.
Sidd does not nor will he ever condone violence in any form for any reason whatsoever.
The Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) remind us that;
Know this, O good man, that evil things are uncontrollable.
Let not greed and wickedness drag you into suffering for a long time.
What this says is that Evil and Evil-doers are everywhere and are indeed uncontrollable.
One can not change those who desire not to change, one can not push ones own agenda and ideals as well as ones own culture on another. In doing so, one often proceeds to ruin and abolish the very culture of the one whom the perpetrator seeks to change. The true ideals of Islam are no where near the same as the radicals whom spread the evil and hatred period.
If one is secure in their beliefs and in oneself, one will be able to better withstand these negative influences and not suffer nor feel badly for very long. That is not to mean one is not supposed to feel bad for the victims, not hate the haters, it means one will not be drug into the vicious cycle of hatred and contempt. one will not react with anger, shouting or chanting of slogans. in the news I see in Florida, a small church is planning a Koran burning to protest and as they say, 'warn' the evil doers.
these poor delusional souls are indeed deep in suffering, hatred and intolerance, they are and will suffering for a long time and will incur the negative Karma associated with these acts, as the perpetrators of violence will as well.
Lets all remember this day and it's aftermath, let us all strive to be more kind to others, more tolerant and understanding of those who are different and have different beliefs...not all are out to get us. Not all are evil who are different. Let not fear enter and rule our lives.
