Peace within ourselves

To the Editor:

Anger can sit behind the wheel of a car and kill. Also when holding a gun. The same with stones, bats or hurtful words, of which can kill.

Our minds hook on drugs that can do the same. Power that makes us feel important over another human. Stress in our lives to keep going like the Energizer bunny.

All of the actions can kill. Peace within ourselves is vital to help prevent that its part of our lives to say or think that it’s OK to hurt one another.

It is not OK to take a life and misuse it, or bring anyone down like a bully would do for his own satisfaction.

It’s time we stress love in our world and say no to those things that are meant to hurt anyone. God’s love was meant to help us all to have a better life, not a life filled with destruction.

It’s time to start turning our world around for the better, to show more peace that was meant to be for our own good.
