A Ramble About Violence

As we all know the world is a violent place. So much of it is not fighting but something else. There is economic, political, environmental, ecological, social and spiritual violence that does as much harm you can’t see. It’s truly troubling what humans do to each other and to nature.

People have such promise for peace and they have the ability for unreal violence too. All this is senseless tragedy that doesn’t have to happen if we are intentional about pursuing peace, understanding and reconciliation.

How we treat our fellow man and the planet says a lot about us. We can do better. All of us can.

Be kind to the world around you. Peace begins with all of us.

  1. So true. Easy to follow being kind yourself; however, what do we do with other people. I’m from the US, and our country is in turmoil. It makes me so sad.
