That is exactly how I see peace. People working together, no matter their personal beliefs to achieve a common interest or goal. To achieve peace it is going to require us all to take a step back, and open our minds to see the diversity, and accept each other without judgment. If we accept each other, as we are, with compassion and understanding, we just might find out that everybody desires the same thing.
I have been reading a lot of blogs lately that are talking about the uniqueness of the blogging community and the relationships we have. I even made a post about it a little while back. One of the comments, I believe it was form Jena Isle, mentioned that everyone should have a blog. Perhaps then we could all realize that we are not that different. The Internet, is a truly diverse community, and could very well be the way to get things rolling. When you think about it, we talk with people from all over the world. I have friends from other countries, provinces, and states. It amazes me at times how much we all have in common.
I dream of a day when there is understanding, compassion, and peace world wide. I don’t really believe it could happen within my life time, but I can dream of it for our children and their children's sake. We have an opportunity to start some changes. It is going to be up to us to follow through, and give our governments the chance to prove themselves.
