I’ve written and deleted two full-length posts on peace today. Both were effort-laden and a tad preachy. What can I say? It’s my style, but I’m working on that. The basic message of both was that peace begins at home.
Mother Teresa was quoted (in answer to a question), “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.” And I believe that’s where it begins. The healthiest (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually), kindest, most confident children come from happy, loving homes that place love and nurturing a child’s self-esteem above all other family endeavours. And, in time, these children will grow up to become the most loving, kind, ethical adults.
This would not only cement the future, but the process of changing people’s hearts and souls toward positive, healthy thoughts begins immediately. I see positive change all the time. I am constantly inspired by friends and family that are on personal journeys toward bettering themselves. All of this contributes to a more positive, peace-full world, if only on a small scale.
