North Korea is threatening to launch a nuclear bomb towards the United States. Israel is threatening to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. Iraq is a minefield. Thousands are being killed in Syria. The world seems to have nothing better to do than to threaten, maim, and kill. Me, I’m just spurred on by a hope and a dream. What is my hope and dream?
My hope and dream is to see one world, one human family, all viewing and treating one another as brothers and sisters. I want to be able to travel anywhere on the planet without passports or worrying aboutborders.
It is my hope and my dream to see a clean world; no more pollution, no more garbage strewn in the streets and fields, no more mines or harmful weapons of any kind. Streets lined with fruit trees that anybody can pick and eat as they delight. Bright-colored flowers in every direction beckoning a welcome by their sweet-smelling fragrances.
No more artificial lights to hide the myriads o twinkling stars in the night sky. The soft embrace of the moon as it crosses beaming peace. Never-ending restful nights of peace and tranquillity to calm the nerves filled with nothing to ruin one’s repose.
War, famine, sickness and death:
I see children being able to play anywhere and fill the neighborhoods with their gleeful shrieks and peaceful laughter. I hear children’s joyful shrieks and laughter replacing the noisy automobiles and airplanes.
I see animals going wherever they wish, harming no one and no one harming them, being welcomed and never hurt by anyone. I never want to read again or hear again of endangered species of either flora or fauna.
I want to be able to drink the water of any river or lake without the need of any filters. I want to be able to swim in any body of water and be refreshed by the purity.
It is this hope and this dream that keeps me moving forward despite all the sad and bad news that bombards me each day. May my hope and dream soon be a reality for one and all!
