Humanity's present trajectory, marred by unnecessary conflicts, divisions and agitations, is heading to an era of marked violence and utter chaos. But the present course is not unavoidable. There's is yet time to rectify the current path. A much needed human reconciliation would suffice in promoting international peace and human happiness on planet Earth.
Yesterday, May 16, was the United Nations (UN) designated International Day of Living Together in Peace. And while many people might have missed yesterday's reminder to humanity, the UN Human Rights Agency, in a 10:00 a.m. Twitter tweet, effectively captured humanity's reality and scope:
"The task of learning to live together, in equality and justice, is humanity's oldest and most essential challenge. United in differences and diversity, we can build a sustainable world of peace, solidarity and harmony," un.org.
Citing the resolution that created the International Day of Living Together in Peace, the international body outlined the simple path to harmony and cohesiveness: "Living together in peace is all about accepting difference and having the ability to listen to, recognize, respect and appreciate others, as well as living in a peaceful and united way."
Simple enough? Then, let's give it a go...toward humanity's much needed peace, reconciliation, forgiveness, acceptance and equality of all people.
