Q..... World Peace

How many of us do sincerely pray for world peace
How many just think it is an illusion
If we go on not praying for world peace
If we go on thinking it is an illusion
Just an illusion it may remain.

    Good to bring it to the forefront world peace which has been unknown since time began, but even in our own backyard just tell another driver he's doing something wrong and he may hit you with a baseball bat...regards (Report) Reply

    So true. We must all want and try for world peace in order for it to become more then an illusion. (Report) Reply

    If nobody comes forward it is OK but a conscious being should feel for it. Undoubtedly, it is the need of the day. Nice truth is glorified in a few lines. (Report) Reply

    Since we are living on power, status and money-talking society; nobody will sincerely wish or hope better situation & condition for others. What they know is to make their position better and permit them to be more evil and hold on that.
    Destruction and disaster is the main package of war and it is only can be felt by people who facing the pain of war. They will pray for safety and security but others just can't walk the talk. Proposed action is only paper-talking on luxury & extravagant ceremony and war victims remain the same.
    Nobody willing to act unless they gain something and hidden agenda will cause pray become curse and war getting worse.
    Good smack to the un-sincere community. (Report) Reply
