Day 2 Nov. 18, Wednesday
Progress requires peace and life without fear
Lowell, MI-It is a nasty dark November day out there and I am facing a full day of writing without knowing what I am going to write about. I usually drive to Murray Lake to regroup my thoughts.
But, today it is just not working. I am supposed to write a column for the Ionia Sentinel-Standard, and I just finished it. It’s about tweeting.
Maybe I should write about the chaos that’s happening in the world. My daughter Emma Palova-Chavent lives in a wine village in Fixin, France. They just moved from Dijon.
She often visits Paris to shop. I visited with her in 2013. It will never be the same city since the terrorist attacks.
I fear for all the European countries and the USA. We live in a world where no one can feel safe anymore; not in a theater, on a plane, at a school or at a football stadium.
Violence and evil are unacceptable in any society. Humanity and kindness must prevail along with peace.
We cannot move forward in violent times. I consider myself to be a creative person. I cannot watch all this destruction or talk about retaliation. Violence bears only more violence.
I don’t know the solution to all this, but definitely not more violence. Progress requires peace and life without fear.
We should be working on fighting against hunger and illnesses, on education, arts and not war on terror.
We should be challenging ourselves like this content challenge by Learn to Blog.
