For once, I’d like to read a science fiction story where all war, greed, poverty, hunger and injustice disappear, love, friendship and compassion prevail, and there is peace on earth. Now THERE is a premise that would open up people’s eyes.
Not that I’m saying there is no love in the world. The way I see it, true peace can only be obtained when the majority of humanity sees that peace is no fantasy; it is not an abstract idea. It’s possible to get to that point. People need to know that it really is possible.
And to those who will accuse me of being naive, ignorant, happy-go-lucky, or just plain in denial, I assert that I do understand the intensity of the world’s issues. But I also believe—ardently—that love is stronger than hate. The idea of peace, and the hope that comes with it, can prevail over the harsh reality of war—but only if we open up our minds to this possibility and make way to letting it happen.
We, as the presiding inhabitants of the earth, are responsible for this. Not one person. Not one political party, one religion, one gender, or one race. Whatever happens, we’re ALL going to have to face the same consequences together. We’re really not that different.
If you actually took the time to read this, thank you for your time and may God bless you.
