The world will be like the Heavens when it is free of violence?

As the Holy Bible says, the "Heavens proclaim the glory of God". "And the firmament displays the wonders of His Love". The Angels and Saints of the Most High God, are continually rejoicing and singing to God their Creator and Maker, Holy, Holy, Holy, Hosanna in the highest. Joy, happiness and peace are theirs always because there are no pains, no violence, so it shall be if violence is taken away from this world. They shall be abundant rejoicing and gladness if the world would be free of violence. Worries and stress will drastically reduce. People will live to their ripe old age in good health with freedom in their minds and environment. The world will seem to be the heavens because peace, joy and love will radiate the whole world. Nobody will speak evil or bear grudges against one another. There will be no backbiting, no fighting, no tribal sentiment, no racism, no gender sentiment. We shall see ourselves as truly human beings.It will be great, awesome if women, who are the nation builders are respected, honored, and appreciated.

The violence that women face are not just physical violence, they also face psychological violence of neglect and rejection even domestically. Women who naturally are endowed with great wisdom and potentials to manage the home are often put aside when important decisions are being taken in the homes and at the long run those decisions are not of greater benefit to the family. Things like that bring setbacks to the family and to the society at large. When a woman is not happy, it affects the whole family. And when women in the society are not happy, it also affects the society negatively.  

I can imagine life to be blissful for women when there is no violence. Women will be free, they will have the freedom to do good, think properly, execute their good plans and live fulfilled life for themselves and the entire society. The men also will be happy, they will reserve the energy they use to inflict violence on women for greater good works for the benefit of the entire world. When women are free from violence, they are happy, men also are valued and respected to the core.

From my own views and ideas, in the family, women should respect the men, as much as possible, they should avoid nagging at their husbands or men in general. Women who are more educated than their husbands, should not look down on them or snob them because of their level of education. Women are to complement their husbands not to compete with them.

On the other hand, men should love their wives and women in general. They should not use their masculine nature as an intimidation to women. They should recognize the potentials in women and respect the dignity of womanhood. They should learn to control their sexual urge and stop harassing women sexually. They should know that women are not punch bags and so should never bully them no matter the circumstance. Women should be loved, respected, honored, pampered and cared for. More so, they should be allowed to be what they want to be, should be given equal space to utilize their God's given potentials  and talents to the fullest as desired by them. There should be no gender prejudice.  There should be no preferential treatment that is based on gender. If these things are done, the world will be full of peace and so become a better place to dwell in.

Hi Obioma,

Hopefully the issue has been rectified now. I was told that the "feedback" button is the appropriate thing to use, and also the tech team has been alerted to the problem. Send another "feedback" ticket, if the problem persists and/or send me a private message, too, if it does. Thanks again for letting us know.

Hi Obioma,
Sometimes it takes time for us to find new stories, but I am glad to read yours this morning and to send you the message that your powerful words and clear vision of what a peaceful world with men and women showing respect and love for each other, is a beautiful and hopeful image to hold onto.
I think in answer to your question to Jill is that many members of World Pulse have not realized the importance and joy of being an Encourager, which means regular reading of new stories. The more Encouragers we have, the more important stories are read. For me, it is so important personally as I learn so much every time I log on, and always am left wth renewed hope because of reading strong words such as yours here.
In sisterhood,
Tam
