This year, I’ve noticed too many flags at half staff. This is done, out of respect, when someone important dies. Every other day some terrorist is attacking the good people of the world. I’m glad that we are honoring all the fallen.
This morning I saw pictures on Facebook of military service dogs. How they unconditionally put themselves in the line of fire to protect the ones who take care of them is beyond me, but that they do lifts my spirit.
All too often, I forget there is still so much good in the world. The corruption, the evil, may only be a minor part of life, however it gets most of the attention because that’s what we crave. How much more peaceful would the world be had we been able to keep our emotions in check and our anger under control.
Innocent people suffer and the hands of those who have no respect for life or peace.
The world is so toxic at this time that the only possible outcome is to cleanse itself, however what is it getting rid off? More good people die at the hands of intolerant people, and then there is illness. How many good people are plagued by disease and suffering? Another cleansing strategy?
So what can I do to effect some change in the world? This one person against the world seems like an un-winnable battle. However, if all of us who feel the same as me would continue to express a positive attitude and a desire to be at peace within ourselves, the world may start to feel that we care.
This morning, my prayer is that all who feel the need to express peace, continue to do so in the hopes that we can set an example for others to follow.
Be @ Peace
