This is what I see today while I am on the internet “Manhunt for bombing suspect”, Boston on lockdown as manhunt intensifies”, “Bomber search live updates”, “Boston overnight timeline”, “BOSTON SUSPECT DEAD; MANHUNT ON FOR THE OTHER”, “Bombing suspects are brothers, age 26 & 19”, “Dramatic video of overnight firefight”, and more.

First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.

Thomas a Kempis

In light of the recent incidents in Boston I am wondering if you still have a fight in you for peace in the world today? Yes, I know that there are some madmen out there that will do as much as they can to cause uproar and destruction.

We must also realize that many of these people are troubled and angry for various reasons. On the other hand you have the potential to help create a world of peace. A world where are families can be safe and not worry about looking over their shoulders. Can we have a world where it can be safe to be out day or night? Or where kids can play with one another without fear of an attacker from within or without?

Imagine what parents have to go through as they drop them off each day not knowing what is next. On the other hand think about the shame that the parents of these offenders. In some cases the parent’s attempted and tried to do the best could but then they face this dreadful day that their child is responsible for all that drama. That’s the day it must really suck to be a parent.

Overall we must all continue to offer prayers of peace, and aim to help one another through these times. You never know what each day holds and what shall happen. Peace is not something that is going to happen by sitting down and wishing and dreaming. It is something that you have to make an effort to fight for if you want it.

So, Can We Have Peace In The World?

My question is do you want it bad enough?  Thoughts of peace, leads to words of peace that results in action for peace.

 

Take care until………and God Bless ya
