Peace is a goal that sometimes is NOT met! A quest by some individuals and even mighty nations for a betterment of life. But, at times, power and might, control, wealth are some of the hinderances to the reality of having Peace.
Where is the compassion, the common sense, the decency, and even love for others? Or does something or someone evil, make the goal unable to be accomplished?
Pawns come into play becoming victims in life.
The “Self” becomes “The other” and is vanquished by the dominant. A sadness in life for all or any of those affected.
Peace is still a goal with love thrown in, to be part of the equation.
I quote: “In God’s will is our peace” T. Merton
“Give Peace a chance” J. Lennon
