The Right To Peace and Plenty

The Right To Peace

“It is time all nations and all people live up to the words of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which recognizes the inherent dignity and equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human race.”

— Secretary-General António Guterres

My schedule is still not out of the woods, so to speak, but hey, even woods can have some light clearings where one can pause for a rest, peek at the sky and think of peace and hunger in the same breath 🙂  So here’s to celebrating the International Day of Peace, or what’s precious little left of it now.

    The song itself is peace-inducing. I am sharing it on Tao Talk. You know, earlier today I heard some disturbing/depressing news and started to go into the negative feeling spiral. Then I remembered something someone had written recently on their blog about staying strong in the light and joining others in their light, to help vanquish the darkness. It dispelled the dark and light thoughts came. Joining you and the other light seekers in spirit. Together, Peace Can Reign.

    • Thanks for sharing, Lisa. And joining in the light! I especially like catching the sunlight, if only for its Vitamin D 🙂 By the way, the International Day of Peace, as set by the UN General Assembly, is observed on 21 Sept., so we’re a little bit late for this now, but really, it should be celebrated daily! Peace will never be late 🙂

  4. And as John Lennon sang, ‘Imagine’. Your post celebrates a message we can never hear enough.

    • Yes, Dave. These days, we need lots of imagining about peace, justice… our social conditions, even the climate and environment, if only to somehow buoy us up for a while from a general feeling of helplessness. Thank you for your thoughts.

  5. Hopes in the sky, Said, great music and lyrics, recalls a time when I was younger. Worthwhile, yes. Kind of sad that it now reminds me how rapidly we’re descending to the other place, but glad you have personal moments in the clearing. 🙂

    • Thank you, Steve. Indeed, hopes in the sky, and by sky, that should mean beyond, beyond the exosphere 🙂 Sorry for the late response, hopefully ‘will be getting more time soon to again read more blogs.
