Dona Nobis Pacem

I doubt I'll ever understand why we fight. I just don't get it. What makes us think we are better than anyone else? What makes "us" right and "them" wrong?

Why is it so hard to see others as just humans? As people sharing this planet together? I have never understood the sense of entitlement that some people have. I will never understand violence for the sake of something monetary, and intangible. I just don't get it.

I have met people of all different shapes and sizes. I have known young and old. The one thing we have in common is the need to be loved, to be cared about.

I wonder what would happen if we all approached things from a place of love? Truly, honestly?

"FIGHTING FOR PEACE IS LIKE SCREWING FOR VIRGINITY!"

PEACE YA'LL!!!

If more souls carried your gentle nature and fun-loving spirit, we wouldn't have to feel this rage.

Peace, My Good Friend.

I'm glad you participated, Frannie. It's interestin' my mom's theory on all the strife in the world - it's caused by men. It must be testosterone. Think about it - what have they had to hunt since they stopped having to kill for food? Each other.

Makes girl power pretty important.
