Merry Christmas to all!
At this time each and every year, men speak of peace and goodwill to all - often assumed beautiful sentiments, which are nonetheless, easily retracted to the apathy of selfishness and greed by the New Year, if not sooner.
Thus, under such conditions, war, conflict and suffering are prolonged and carried on from one year, unto another year and then into yet another year, hereby establishing perpetual strife among the human race.
But I must have the audacity to wish and to hope that it is within the scope of humankind to love, to care and to respect each other and our environment. Peace must become attainable. The spirit of comfort, liberty and happiness could transcend all borders if wished and wanted.
However, the reality of current affairs suggests that actions by those entrusted by the peoples to govern their affairs, are individualistic, isolationist, nationalistic and invoking of conflict and divisiveness.
Yet, I must continue to wish for peace, for liberty, for happiness, for goodwill and for a better environment. Maybe, if all of humanity would hope and wish a bit louder and play our parts to accomplish the role of civil-caring humans, then, just maybe, wishes of peace could become the enjoyment of true peace over the lands of our Planet Earth.
