I don't pretend I know what it would take for peace in the world with so many different factions warring over so many different issues. Is peace even possible seems a more revelent question to ask. Regardless of what our concept of peace I think that at the bottom of it is the desire to create a better life for ourselves, our loved ones, and the need to leave them a better world when we have passed on.
The way things are going I just can't see it happening anytime in the near future and that is about the saddest statement I think I could make about the future. But I have hope and I have a desire to see peace for all. That is my starting point. I can't see it or know how it might happen or when but I have hope.
When we lose hope then the dream is really lost beyond
redemption so I cling to that hope for myself and mankind and ask that others
hold that hope alive so that we may create a better future.
The basic starting is our hope that will inspire us to seek ways, compromises, and actions that will eventually turn it into truth.
