World Peace Day

Today is World Peace Day. I read the question on Facebook "is the day still needed?" Feel free to voice your opinion in the comments. My answer is yes.

As sung by John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band..



Certainly we need Peace between countries, religious groups, and we need terrorists groups to dissolve.  I spoke to a military veteran whose opinions I respected and he stated that "war is the failure diplomacy."

John Lennon "Imagine"...


Peace between other nations would be cool! However we need peace at home too.

We need peace from the senseless violence. We need to stop the shootings at churches, schools, movie theaters and our neighborhoods.

We need peace in our homes. (and homes for those without homes but that's another topic.) We need peace between neighbors. Peace between citizens and police.

Just look at the headlines and it is easy to see where we need peace.

Really "What's So Funny About Peace, Love and Understanding"...

Why can't every day be like Christmas, replaced by, why can't every day be a peaceful day?

They are many people receiving money or power because we have no peace.

When men stop preying on each other, and start praying for each other... would there be peace?

I don't know, Mike, but keep the day!!
