HAS THE WORLD GONE CRAZY?
Do we let ourselves be overwhelmed by media news of spree killers that run amok in Munich an in Japan… or of asylants from Syria that murdered a serbian in Salzburg,… or of that priest in France, which was murderd during his church service by islamists – and all these things happen in just a few days, as media lets us know…?!
Yes, of course those news are horrible. But what do we – each of us – decide to do with those news? How do we want to act – or re-act?
And peace does not start far way out there with some politicians, but within our own hearts and minds.
What if not now?
Where if not right within our heart?
How if not through our own actions?
What if it is really easy? What if peace starts with a simple honest smile. With a friendly open gaze that says:
“may you be blessed.
May you be happy.
Good, that you are here now.”
Imagine a world of people, that would encounter each other saying and meaning the above, to whoever they meet?!
Here comes a photo video which shows pictures of a meeting of religious leaders in the Holy Land. They came from different countries, from different cultures, from different religions. What united them was the aim to understand each other and to honor and appreciate each others qualities.
May my photovideo be an ongoing inspiration and reminder – for others and also for myself. That we may choose to live in peace.
