There’s Nothing We Can Do

There’s nothing we can do about world peace. Well at least that’s the thought that crossed my mind while watching a show on Netflix about how some girl used to be the perfect pageant princess, and also said it was because she always wished for world peace. And that’s when I realized that wishing for world peace literally does nothing in accomplishing world peace. Sure, of course we all want it, but why don’t we do anything about it? Its like the movie “Pay It Forward” where a little boy performs an act of kindness for someone and asks that person to do an act for three more people, and so on. I’ve always wondered why we never took on to that habit. And it’s never made sense to me why someone’s looks, skin color, race or religion played a part in how you would treat them. They’re a person, I’m a person, that’s it. I’ve never understood the white racist who calls every black person the n-word, or the Latina girl who is a bitch to her white teacher because she thinks every white person is against immigration. Look around, it’s so clear why world peace isn’t a possibility when there’s more hate and animosity towards each other than there is respect and understanding. Like Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that; Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” He might not have been the most perfect man, but he was certainly on to something. Seriously, I don’t understand why it’s so difficult for people to just be kind, and sympathetic. It doesn’t take much to just say hello. If we all listened a lot more than we spoke, we might actually learn a thing or two about one another, and then the world might be a lot more beautiful place.
