Will There Ever Really Be Peace?
Did you send Christmas cards this past year? Did you receive holiday cards for whichever holiday you and your family and friends celebrate?
Did you notice how many cards have the word or symbol for PEACE on them?
More than half the cards we received had the word PEACE on them somewhere and/or a dove.
We sent cards with a dove on the front.
Has sending holiday cards become like so much else in life now; words with no meaning, no feeling behind. Insincere. Prayers said over and over so you can think about something else while you pray. Salutations said but not meant. Endearments spoken but not special.
I don't want that in my life.
Is it really possible to eventually have peace in the world or have things gone too far away from sincerity, honesty, honor? I used to believe that one person could indeed make a difference and then reach out to one person at a time. Is that still possible or is it now an impossible dream? We as a people were taught respect for each other when I was growing up, and we were taught to be tolerant of each others beliefs and political affiliations. In my opinion people have lost their voice, their voice of honor, and have allowed others to lead them to a place that they yell "get rid of them" and "reload" aimed at people who don't think as they want them to or do as they want them to do or vote as they want them to vote. The weak and ill people who follow the dissidents are easily led to hatred and violence.
I will never stop believing that we all matter; no one is more important or more worthwhile than anyone else, even if some people think they are.
