Wars have been costing too much death and horribly negative influence in the world. No matter civil war or invade another country it always bring us misery. Everybody loves peace, why not make our earth more peaceful. It is sad to see the Olympic torch relay to be disrupted by protester, it is harrowing to see the 911 tragedy. So, let’s reject violence and make a peaceful, harmonious world. People fight for freedom, but they can also negotiate. Violence is not the only way to get freedom, sometimes it makes things worse.
We detest wars, because they are ruthless, they can take away of our family members’ lives. Over 1.4 million people were killed in the Vietnam War. Lives are fragile we can’t use our lives to trade some political attempts. Politicians shouldn’t use soldiers’ lives to achieve their ambitions. Spirit leaders shouldn’t inspire their followers to make violence against the government. Violence can’t solve problems, but it can make problems more complicated. Tax payer burden too much for the astronomical military budget. The military invent whatever biochemistry weapons which are used to kill with the budget. People are starving, disease are spreading in the most violent places on earth. Violence is the backward of history. It is nothing but barbaric, bleeding.
I know my silly wish couldn’t be achieved within next decades, but I still wish everyone could tolerance others and know how to cooperate with each others. We need to learn how to trust. Also, we need to learn how to love. No prejudice, no violence should be called from very deeply of our hearts. I wish no terrorism in the world. I respect their believes and I’d appreciated if they will be calm. No car bomb, no injustice of human rights. We need less criticism and more appreciated.
Politicians need to be cool, and relax their minds. Maybe they need to spend more time with their families rather than attack their “rivals”. They need to make each other up rather than crash each other down.
I appreciate so very much that I didn’t involve into any kind of violence, as well as my family and friends. But I heard about how painful they are suffering for those families which have family members being sent to Iraq. I know people different to believe when they heard people say I know what are you feeling. But I know exactly what they feel. I really wish the world will be no violence and more peaceful.
