This weeks new theme is PEACE.
When one is sick and unable to do a lot, one tends to watch TV and for me it seems to mean I watch a lot of news. Watching the news means that one sees all the violence happening around the world. It is really very sad to see people being killed because they believe in something different or someone wants to kill them while committing a crime. And there are also many more attempted murders. Violence seems to be an ongoing thing is so many countries and sadly the countries that are expected to keep the peace are either stretched too thin or just cannot afford to keep sending in troops to help, along with many other reasons they just cannot help.
What is so hard for the rest of us to conceive is why this is still going on in this day and age when we are supposed to be so civilized and understanding of others being different than we are. Being of mixed races may give me a different view as to being one who accepts how others look and I try to accept that we can all have different spiritual beliefs, going from none to very deep beliefs. I do dislike those who are rude or who abuse others. But for the most part I like to believe in the goodness of others and accept everyone as they are.
At my age I have also learned that we cannot change anyone and that the only one who can change us is ourselves. That is only if we are willing to admit there is something that needs to be changed. For the most part we do not think there is anything wrong with ourselves and we are just fine as we are, even though that little voice in our head tells us that we can always improve.
My hope is that we can give peace a chance. All I am saying is to love thy neighbor and give peace a chance. Give peace a chance and stop the killings in Egypt, Syria, Israel, Jordan, Mexico, Libya, Sudan, so many African nations that I cannot name them all, the United States. It almost seems like it is all over the world right now. Stop killing the children and give peace a chance. We can change things if we really want to give peace a chance.
Please come back on Thursday and let us know how you feel about "Peace" and any ideas you might have to help bring "Peace" even to your little corner of the world.
See you Thursday,
PS...So sorry about being sick and late, for this very important date. Please forgive me.
