The way people from all over the world have been embracing and are joining the International Friendship Blogging Forum reflects the desire that burns in people’s hearts to see all artificial boundaries between the people of the world broken down.
We may be of different colors and races, live in different geographical locations, speak different languages, practice different religions, and belong to different political schools of thought, but we are all basically the same.
We have the same basic needs. We have the same likes and dislikes. We have the same basic feelings, desires, and wants. We want to love and be loved; we want to belong; to have a sense of self-worth, and to enjoy a good degree of autonomy.
Human nature was meant to be pure like a brand new computer. Then the force of darkness dropped an evil virus into the human heart, corrupting it and thus the seed of evil was sown in the world, rooted on a foundation of greed, and vaulting ambition.
Ever since, it has been sprouting in the hearts some of us humans rendering us greedy, unscrupulous, hungry for power and ready to go to any length to grab the resources of the world only for ourselves.
This has made the world a wicked place, marked by all sorts of evil acts such including wars, stealing, corruption, exploitation of man by man, injustice, poverty, disease, suffering, and misery.
Over the years, humanity has been grappling with these worries, spending huge sums of money to clear the world of evil and make love and peace reign. Yet, the situation seems to grow worse everyday. The barriers of color, space, religion, language, and political ideologies separate the people of the world with different camps created here as people see themselves as opposed to others.
International Friendship Blogging Forum sees beyond all the barriers that keep humans apart; and sees the so-called differences as the Creator’s way of enriching humanity, offering us the opportunity to bring our various uniqueness to a common table, complement and enrich the common pot from which a common meal must be dished to nourish one another.
As International Friends, we shall journey together, in solidarity and love, growing together, supporting one another, lifting each other when we fall, and thus promoting the values that are needed to make the world an excellent place for all.
As a very wise man once said, sometimes great things have very humble beginnings. We could well be at the start of something greater for the world than we can even imagine. I want in a very special way to congratulate all of you who are the pioneers of this forum. The first list of one hundred persons who have indicated their willingness to belong shall soon be published.
As it is said, “To create the olive, king of all trees, a hundred years is required.” We shall go patiently. Our olive tree is on it’s way. Many blessings to all.
