Through the looking Glass

In this life I believe that the only thing we do in life is create war and hatred for each other. In this life why can’t we understand how to get along with each other and to just be happy even being alive? Why can’t we just understand that life is not just about fighting and gaining the most power? We create pain and suffering without thinking and within that pain and suffering is homelessness, drug use, alcoholism, abuse, and destruction. Why can’t we just say enough is enough and be done with fighting and all of the other trash in this world? Why can’t we just all live in harmony?

Even if peace was real it still would not stop all of the broken things that we must fix. The world is like a giant heart, it has feelings and it can die just like us. We need to respect the earth by not creating war and not to be involved even if it means making us vulnerable to attack. The only thing that we can do right now is to look at what we have done in the past and present, so that we can make it a better and safer place to live. It may not be the easiest thing to do but we have to stop all of this nonsense; for example, war murder, drugs, and poverty!

Can we just make this Earth a cleaner place to live? Will someone ever save us from destroying the place we call home, with war and destruction? The only thing we must do is look through the looking glass!
