Let There Be Peace

Caroline Bokwe
Posted November 6, 2020 from Cameroon

Peace is when all humans live as one big family.

Peace is when women can freely navigate the world's system without the fear of judgement, bias, discrimination, power, harrassnent, sexual exploitation, etc

Peace is when women can freely choose the type of profession they would love to invest their time in without being told of which ones best suits them as women.

Peace is when women are nolonger seen as objects but as independent and strong contributors to the growth of society.

Peace is when young children are not dragged into the world's differences but are protected from all danger.

Peace is when we stop sacrificing our children's lives in the name of conflict.

Peace is when we stop using our children as a bargaining tool to settle scores.

Peace is when children are allowed to go to school without fear from being attacked by power-hungry monsters.

Peace Peace Peace

Let There Be Peace

This is beautiful. A guide for the United Nations. A guide for every country, every community. A guide for us to continue to work on together, globally.

Hello Caroline,
I love your allusion to both external peace in the environment, and how it is interwoven to peace within the individual and in our relationships to fill us with courage to live. Amen to peace.

Hello Nini, I love your choices of words used. The world is a global village and for sure we are so interconnected, the reason we have to live in peace.

Hello Caroline, what a great write JP and definition of peace. I agree with Tam that this should be a guide for the united Nation, every country, community and to individuals too. We have lost so much in this senseless war. My greatest prayer is that it comes to an end very soon, why not now so we can have lasting peace. I hope you are safe my dear.
Hugs, Regina

Hello Regina, if wishes were horses, we would love to see this come to pass right now. However, the goal is to continue to fight until we achieve that dream. Thank you so much for your kind words. You stay safe.

Peace to you and all you do with those around you. I agree peaceful minds bring into being peaceful communities and peaceful interactions among the people. The more we step into our personal power as women the more we realize how much we can really do together. The world for a very long time has not been kind to many, Yet this is changing. It may not seem like it, yet it is true. The world opened up and many many reach across land and oceans to make a difference because it is unacceptable for anyone to suffer in this age of the world. No excuses for anyone to make. Peace is bringing together everyone to live in harmony reaching their full potential peacefully so peaceful contentment lifts hearts around the world to do even more. Thank you for your words, I too wish for peace. One way I keep myself connected to my authentic self is listening to Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey free 21 day meditations. Right now we are on day 11 yet everyone can still go through the first 10 days. here is a link sending you all peace and safety. https://chopracentermeditation.com/ join up and let the peace be shared.
