Can’t we all give Peace a chance? She’s really sad because no one seems to like her anymore. All of her friends are in a big fight over who’s right and who’s wrong. And poor Peace has become an outsider. She just wants us all to get along and help one another out. Why must that be so hard to do? It’s so sad to see Peace cry. If we all would stop shouting and fighting and killing, then maybe Peace would smile again. She has a beautiful smile when all is right with the world. So let’s pause for one second and all take a breath. Let’s put aside our grievances and forgive. Let’s work together instead of against each other. We can make all the difference in Peace’s happiness. Just by being nice to each other. A smile never hurt anybody, but money and guns do every day. Maybe all of the politicians and dictators could smile and give each other a hug instead of raising their fists and shouting hateful accusations. Maybe we all could smile and hug our friends along with our enemies. For Peace’s sake, I’m willing to smile and give everyone in the world a giant hug. Are you willing, too?
