Wish for Peace… I know, I am just dreaming out loud…
Posted by BarbaraZ on April 18, 2013
I know I should not let the events that have happened like that of the Boston marathon and Newtown get me down, but they do. I just cannot help but wonder about the world that my children and my grandchildren will live in down the road. It is so sad that we, as people cannot learn to live together in Peace. Can you imagine all that could be accomplished if the negative efforts were put toward positive efforts in science, agriculture, education and more.. the wonders that could happen?
I wish that I could see the day
when all the world was free.
When people of any race or creed
could be friends as friends should be.
words of a 14-year-old, written after the Hungarian invasion of 1956 (me)
Some day after mastering the winds, the waves, the tide and gravity,
we shall harness for God the energies of Love,
and then for the second time in the History of the World,
Man will have discovered Fire.
Words of Teilhard de Chardin
Words have the power to destroy or heal,
When words are both true and kind,
they can change the world.
From Jack Kornfield’s, Budda’s Little Instruction Book
On a lighter note, the words from the song Side by Side.
