elevate

In today’s world a peaceful human being is rare. violence sometimes seems more ‘normal’ if that word can be used. Is seems to me that some people see peaceful people as weak, but I have not seen that. Peaceful people also have self respect and the ability to rise above violence. I wish I could be more specific, but it isn’t there. I wish we as a whole world could elevate to a peaceful way of dealing with disagreements.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree. When I feel bleak about the world (which is often lately) I think of all the compassionate people and remarkably good people there are. Not just people like Desmond Tutu and peace campaigners, but charity workers, volunteers, nurses, teachers, Mum’s and Dad’s etc etc. My hope is we can individually try and love one another and go from there.. peace to you my friend..

  2. I agree. It would be great if we could figure out some way to solve our differences without always having to use force. I have been involved in libertarian politics for decades now and their basic idea is that we CAN live together and find peaceful ways to do that. Too bad so few are even willing to consider the idea.
