I choose peace now and forever for many reasons. For one – it’s the only way. Without peace we are not whole. We are torn and pulled into unnecessary conflict and upheaval. Without peace we have dissolution, chaos and destruction. Without peace we are lost in the abyss of fear, struggle, pain, and weakness. These strange and unpredictable times now call for it more than ever. Secondly – it’s how I was raised. I was raised to take the high road not the low road. There’s no peace in battle. While I believe in speaking your mind and being bold in what you stand for I believe in doing it in a peaceful way. Be with the facts, but don’t do it hatefully. The same point came be made and will be made more powerfully with a much greater impact if made peacefully and lovingly. There is so much anger and hate going around right now. It is truly disheartening. It’s sad how one loose cannon can open the flood gates to so much anger and rage. I’m disheartened for the angry people who can’t see through their rage to a greater truth. There is nothing that compares to unity and love.
