Peace is one of the most precious commodities that the world needs but it is so difficult to have. The question is why it is so difficult to come by. Why are we so divided? Why is the world so torn apart? Why can’t we understand ourselves and live together like one people in a world that has become a global village?
I think we talk so much about peace; and appear to be putting in so much but remain so divided. You can see how divided we are in the differences, conflicts and wars that rock the world.
O.A. Battista has said it very well that, “True peace could come instantly to the world if we treated each other as though today was the last day of our lives – which it could very well be!” I wonder what you think.
What I think is he has said it well. The problem is also very well articulated by John Andrews Holmes who says “we love peace but we are not willing to take wounds for it as we are for war.”
Who could have said it better than J. Sherman Wallace? “If every person in the world loved peace, every nation would love peace.”
I share his view 100% just as I share the view of Croft Pentz that “No God, no peace. Know God know peace.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt also comes in very strongly when he says “Peace, like charity begins at home.”
My proposal is that we put our heads together and make our voices heard on this important issue. What do you think about world peace? What is making it difficult for the world to enjoy peace? What do we do for the world to know peace?
