These Defining Times

From a report affirming the possible catastrophic impact of Climate Change on the United States (US) economy, to protests against rising fuel prices in France, to Russia flexing its naval might over Ukraine, to an unfolding immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border, to the seemingly perpetual struggle of Palestinians, to the war in Yemen, to winning the peace in Syria, to the blatant action to render economic difficulty to the Iranian people, to the European Union (EU) approving the United Kingdom's plan to leave the behemoth trading bloc, to the destruction, death and despair of the California wildfires and to the numerous other testy affairs of the human species, it could now be deducted that these times of 2018 that will certainly transcend into 2019 and beyond, all represent the defining moments of this era.

The political, social, economic and environmental policies adopted now will determine the shape and form of a new World - a world that offers hope, peace,  multinational cooperation and further development, but also a cloudy world marred in agitations, inaction and bad governance bent on upholding continuous strife, instability and division. 

Yet, the final definition of these times rests not with any one man or woman, but with the collective determination of all the people who have empathy, want peace and desire freedom, opportunity, stability and the rule of law. 

So, in lieu of endorsing and promoting fallible ideologies dressed in fear and xenophobia, the people - all the people across all the lands, should therefore let their voices be heard and allow their intents for world harmony be manifested toward the hopeful definition of these times.
