A candle burns… and with it shines the light of my hopes for a better world filled with peace

This candle burns for you...

This candle burns for you…

I cannot go on with life as normal today, as we are once again reminded of the violence in the world we presently live.  Being an Expat can be wonderful, but it also means that we are not with those we love in times of need.  This is the part of the package of ‘living one’s dream’ that is the hardest to handle.  Although far in miles, you are all near and dear in my heart… as are those who suffer in other parts of the world.

I have never understood the hate and harm that takes place in so much of the world.  Life is so very precious, and yet every single day lives are lost to terror and hate.  When will this ever stop? When will we begin to respect and allow others to live peacefully the way they chose?

When I look into my innocent children’s eyes, I wonder what kind of world awaits them. Perhaps this will sound naive, but it would be wonderful if everyone would wake up and realize the value of each life, in all forms, so that we can live & let live… in peace.

This candle burns… and with it shines the light of my hopes for a better world filled with peace.

Only we can make a difference...

Only we can make a difference…

  1. It can sound naive but hopefully your blog post will act as a wake up call so that people realize that each of us can play a vital role in this world

  2. Yesterday was a sad day, today I hope we will become strong. Your words say it better than most can express. Our world is what we make it, I think there are more good than bad, thank you for your wonderfully worded blog, it brings us hope.
