Imagine Peace

Just a couple of thoughts inspired by a post of Artists4peace:

Imagine Peace! Wow, what a beautiful place this earth would be…

Imagine if everyone would get along with each other… Would that be nice?

Imagine if we would find a way to make it happen. Finally. How amazing would that be!

Imagine if we would respect each other, no matter of our religion, the color of our skin, the beliefs we follow, the way we look, we act, we think, we move. Imagine we would respect each other for WHO we are. How much fun could we all have!

Reading papers, magazines, blogs, watching TV, listening to the radio and I feel like they all say the same: Imagine how nice this world would be, if we all would live in peace.

So why is it, that it is not happening? Why is it, that we still fight those wars, that we still go on rampages and kill? Why is it, that we still don’t respect different beliefs, different religions, different looks, different behaviors and so on?

If we all want to live in a better world, if we all want to feel safe, how can it be, that we still don’t all pull on the same rope. And in the same direction?

It would be so easy! The solution is there, right in front of our nose!

How about we all start with respect. Respect for the people around us. Respect for everything we consider different. How about we built “the next level” on respect: Acceptance. How about we live these two simple but so powerful words daily. And how about we teach them to our kids. Respect and accept other people for who they are.

Is it really that simple? It kind of seems like it, right? But then it doesn’t.

If only it would be that simple. The world would have turned into a better place a long time ago already…

I guess the key is not to give up. Keep teaching your kids those values and keep living them. And maybe one day our kids might actually see the change and will hopefully be able to live in a peaceful world…

How nice would that be 🙂

  1. It seems as if it would be lovely. Unfortunately, the people who profit from the world being the way it is wouldn’t agree with us…the ones who make money from war and hatred. The people in charge. That’s what we need to change. If war was not profitable, it would end. But how to you stop domestic violence, child abuse, discrimination, in all it’s forms. How do we stop rape, and inequality? How do we stop the next generation of people from passing on the hatred they were taught to their own children? We need to find answers to those questions. I don’t have them. I love what you wrote. I only wish we could find a way to make it happen.
