Peace One Day

Having read a couple of blogs about the anniversary of 9/11,  I thought Id redress the balance a wee bit by posting this.

Should not interrupt the person doing it.”

    Yes, but don’t you think that peace is just something we’ve made up in our minds? Peace… well, it rarely happens in nature. Because nature is something uncontrollable, chaotic, volatile. I know that wars are unnecessary and awful, but they are something which animals do. Fighting is part of the process.
    However, 9/11, in my opinion, was not a territorial act, not based on defence, not based on the thought of protecting their own citizens – but to create chaos, to create a distraction. Peace won’t happen ‘one day’ it’s already in our hearts and minds… but sadly so is corruption and destruction. The universe wasn’t built out of peace – and so are not we.
    Food for thought, I think.. but I would never want to interrupt a person trying to make peace.
    Funny how we have the ability for both peace and chaos.. ?

    Over n’ out (I am pretty wrecked tonight lol)

    • Heeeeeeey Nicola!
      Well if Im honest this comment has slightly disappointed me, after you said you couldnt remember leaving it I was expecting the ramblings of a drunk and actually it didnt sound drunk at all.
      I was kinda hoping youd go ‘Youre my besssssht mate’ and then burp loudly. (Im proper sniggering at the thought actually)
      But anyway I think you do have a point that nature is kinda chaotic and also brutal, and although were supposed to be all civilised we’re a long way from being that civilised.
      It would be very naive to think that the world is anywhere close to a point of permenant peace. The idea behind Peace One Day is simply to create as much of a cessation of hostilities on the 21st September 2012 as possible, to enable aid workers to do their thing.
      I gather from your comment above that you watched the video at a later point. The bit where he’s talking about getting a letter from the Taliban agreeing to the ceasefire I thought was pretty amazing.
      Then again I think he’s a pretty amazing man cos for one person to create this kind of huge ripple in world affairs is massively cool.
      Anwhooo hope youre having a great weekend!
      Hugs Daf xxx
