I find it hard to write this week. I think it has to do with current events going on in the world. I know, there is always something going on, but at times it all becomes too much. I don’t even want to look at the headlines because I’m afraid of all the tragedy and suffering I’ll see. I am devastated by it.
In the past, I have tried to not read the news and be oblivious to current events, but that is not a solution. Hiding under a rock isn’t going to solve the problem. Neither is pretending that bad things don’t happen.
All I can do for now is pray and not lose faith and hope that one day we will all live in peace.
We probably all know the lyrics to John Lennon’s song Imagine, but I thought I would share them anyway.
"Imagine" Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today... Aha-ah... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion, too Imagine all the people Living life in peace... You... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the world... You... You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And the world will live as one
