I know of no greater work for humanity than in the cause of peace.
Some people are under the bizarre and malevolent misconception that in order to make peace you have to make war, that in order to heal the sprained ankle you should chop off the leg. We have seen some evidence of that thinking lately in this world. Some people fight with their neighbors over issues that might be solved by negotiation. Other's are fighting in foreign lands. Everyone who has ever known about these things has said that when one nation wages war in a foreign land it is always justified as fighting to protect the first nations freedom, and it never is.
The only thing that can protect freedom is peace. The urge for war must be finally overcome in order for there to be peace. That reads like a truism, and it is. Then why is it so hard for people to accept? Because they don't want to let go of a vestigial reaction which they will tell you is germane to the human being.
That sort of thinking reminds me of the people who said the automobile would never work because we are humanly incapable of traveling faster than 8 miles an hour, or it is impossible for humans to survive in outer space
But peace is just as possible as the International Space Station. It takes the same kind of commitment, I recently heard an American politician say that he was very uncomfortable with the fact that there are Russians living in the Space Station, That man is living in a wartime mentality. The Cold War is over. What should we do, attack the Space Station to drive the Russian out? Some people might think so.
In spite of all the "wars and rumors of wars" we are at a point of development and advancement as to be able to perceive and find "peace and rumors of peace" in our world. The causes need to be faced and eliminated. And what are they? Martin Luther King, Jr. said it very well: "Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation."
That is the challenge, the goal and the destiny. It must be done.
(This is your last chance. If I don't get any entries on this one, there'll be no more weekend tests. You will have to fend (whatever that means) for yourselves.)
