|The word peace in 100 different languages.|
Today is the day I gather with others from all over the world to have one voice, one thought process, for a simple word...PEACE. I have gathered with others to blog about peace three times now and yet, our world is in turmoil.
The theme peace seems so simple. I have blogged before that it has to start at home first and work outward. More importantly it has to start within our heart. If we do not have peace of heart, then how can we work for a global peace?
The question is, have I done this since the last time I wrote about this word? Have I taken peace into my own hands and worked to make it happen? What is enough?
The truth is, I have failed. I have often let my own ego interfere when I could have created a peaceful atmosphere. I have held grudges. I have harbored hatred. Yes, I failed and I failed miserably.
However, does that mean there is no hope?
It means I can begin again. I can embrace making my life...our life...a world where there is no war, no violence, no hatred. It means that our generations can grow up and enjoy a peacefulness that is not only within but around them. It means compassion will rule and hope, love, and joy has replace everything else.
Peace can happen if we let it. I believe it. Do you?
