BlogBlast for Peace

For me peace is not an absence of strife…it is finding a place inside of you where there is calm in the midst of the storm.

I live in a place where I’ve had to live with the sound of gunfire. Where the slightest rumble (even if it was thunder) was enough to send one scampering under a bed or table for shelter.

I wish we lived in a world where people will not have to suffer injustice; where angry youths and children will not have to take to the streets with arms to fight for what should rightfully have been theirs.

A world without guns and violence seems Utopian, but we need to strive for an ideal regardless of how unattainable it seems. To the Wright Brothers, ‘unattainable’ was the only ideal worth striving for.

When will this picture be nothing more than a costume and not the symbol of fear and terror that is has become?
