Are chemical weapons a ‘red line’?
Why Not Peace
Why Not Peace?
As the tension of war increases between America and Syria the world is slowly moving towards international political unrest and demonstrations all around the world due to highly unstable circumstances. In such solemn hour in the history of world; I being a normal and regular citizen am highly affected by such occasions and so I ponder upon these crises. Have we forgotten who we are? Have we forgotten that despite our religious and cultural differences we are still bonded together by a deep and meaningful bond of humanity? Why have our hearts gone so cold? Cannot the politician realize the pressure over an average 15 year old boy caused by such events or even the pressure over the public of the nation? Cannot they realize that the public wants peace?
In such a desperate hour I, a fifteen year old boy cannot withstand such pressure. Why the politicians can’t talk over this incident; is war really necessary? None of the public of either countries have grudge against each other, then why is the war necessary. I mean have you even tried talking to each other regarding whatever issue it is? What is the use of international forums such as UN? Is it just forums made by the first world countries to threat and destroy third world countries?
Our religions may differ but all have a similar message of service to humanity and peace. Have all of you forgotten that God is watching over you? I maybe just a kid but I believe that war is not the solution neither is destruction necessary. So why do not we put our hearts together and destroy all the barriers of social, religious, territorial and racial hatred? Is this so hard for us? If it is then I am afraid we have become no more than animals hungry for blood and all our futures are bleak and hopeless.
