How terrible it is that we have this wonderful world given to us and the freedom to choose between good and bad and so often we choose the latter. A part of the Pope’s message that still rings in my head is when he said the real danger in the world comes from man. We are blessed with the ability to choose to live in peace and harmony with one another yet we choose war. We build weapons of mass destruction and we slaughter each other. We abuse, condemn and reject one another and we choose hate over love. It is time for us to turn away from evil, turn away from hate, stop slaughtering each other and know that we are one people, all a part of the human race. We must reject hate and war and treat each other with acceptance and love.
Mankind search for the cure for diseases but I say wouldn’t it be great if we found the cure for hate. It is not a disease yet it is so contagious. It rips apart families and lives with a vengeance. Hate knows no compassion. It knows no sense of right or wrong. It creates sadness and pain, it take lives. Those who inflict grief on others because of hate do not seem to understand that every time you take the life of another you do something wrong.
I wish there was a pill those who hate could take to make their hatred go away. I wish there was a vaccine that could give immunity to hate. Wives, mothers, sisters, brothers, men and women at sometime or another have felt the sting of hate. Hate causes mankind to build weapons of destruction and hate forces them to war. They fight and kill each other not realizing that the answer for harmony is love.
Some are so busy hating they after a while they lack the capacity to love. They spew out hate and love diminishes until all they have left is hate. So they treat others the only way they know…with hate! If we could have a no hate day just one day when every man on earth would treat each other with love maybe then mankind would understand the what the world need most is love. Yes I know I am dreaming but it is a nice dream.
War creates deaths and destruction,
Peace creates unity among nations.
War gives rise to oppression, fear and division,
Peace creates an atmosphere where people can live together as one.
War shows no mercy, there is no respect for life,
Peace creates harmony and a life free from strife.
Those who choose peace choose life.
