Dona Nobis Pacem


This is my fourth year of participation in Mimi's Blogblast for Peace. Again I have chosen a new quote for the globe and how simple that concept is. Respect for the rights of others! Why is it so hard to put into practice?

Again, I choose to reproduce for the body of the post, John Lennon's very moving vision of what the world could be like, should be like - his dream for all of us. May the day when the world will be as one come in my lifetime. Peace be with you.

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

John Lennon, 1971

The missing word in our society seems to be responsibility. We should have a responsibility to respect the rights of others. Most people are so bent on ensuring that their own rights are not infringed upon the forget about others. Just sayin'.

Oh JBM... I don’t think it will come., not for a while yet.

Not when people are so eager to do evil they will blow themselves up... if it means they can kill people who’s only crime is the evil person can manage to group them into a grouping they hate so very badly, or maybe even the victim just has the bad luck to be near someone targeted at the time.

I do wish it were not so.

I sometimes think, for all the poetry and words written on the subject, one of the wisest and most tolerant sayings is simply : “Live and let live” If only these people would be willing to do that.

This post is very apt as tomorrow is Remembrance Day in the UK when we remember servicemen and women who died in conflict. If only we could live in peace.

JMB - LOVELY post. We all need to be reminded of the word 'respect' and try to apply it in our daily dealings with others. I hope and pray for a peaceful world for those we are leaving this earth to when we're long gone. A legacy of peace?
Imagine.

You are #1785 in the Official Gallery.
It is a beautiful offering indeed.
