Amidst Tragedy, Peace is Still the Option

There is turmoil in this world.  It has existed, it does exist, and if we do not choose to be positive and take the actions that we can in peaceful ways to bring enlightenment, education, and knowledge to everyone we encounter, then we are abusing the gift we are given every day which allows us to do so and turmoil will continue to exist.

Peace is a smile or a helping hand.  It is a silent protest for human rights.  It is a somber ceremony of light to remember lost lives and to hope for better days to come.  Peace is love.  Love yourself, love your neighbor, love your enemy, whomever he or she may be.

Love is the answer for every question.  Why?  Because love is the greatest thing you can give to someone.  It comes in all levels.  It comes from all animals on this Earth in some form or another.  It comes in all shapes and sizes and ways.  It comes in small gestures and in grand designs.  It comes in bits and spurts, and all at once.  Love is peace, because when we show love for others, and when we receive love from others, we have no choice but to love them in return and to wish them well.  Loving others and receiving love from others gives peace to us all.

So..."peace be with you."  "LOVE be with you."  
Share it with the world.  And let there be peace.
