“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
The best thing about writing is you can create an imaginary world where everything is how you choose it to be, and the characters act according to your script.
I would love for someone to rewrite our present world and rid it of terror and fear. Imagine not having a newsfeed flooded with headlines reading “Terror Incidents” “Murder” “Bomb blasts” “Home Invasion” and more of that ilk. I would like to not be in fear of my home or neighbourhood being invaded by mindless thugs, and to be friendly with strangers instead of watching them with suspicion.
Gone are the days when you could leave your door unlocked and travel places without a niggling concern that things could go wrong.
We were all born human until race, politics and religion divided our ranks, separating us into factions. Imagine all the people living life in peace. I am not naive enough to expect us to live without discord but surely we can resort to means other than violence to solve our differences.
I want a world where my family feel safe; is that too much to ask?
“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
