365 days Writing Prompt: Silver linings

Write about something you consider “Ugly” — war,violence, failure, hatred–  but try to find a beauty , or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

War,violence,failure,hatred, all of these things cause a lot of dissension in us humans. We can if we sincerely want prevent it from happening.

War in my mind causes the most damage,it kills innocent people,destroys the sanctity of life, injures a lot of people beyond repair, if we humans can set aside our differences by peaceful means, this world would be a much better place to live. War is not the answer to settle our differences think about some countries destroyed because of war,their women and children maimed for life, what was their crime other than they happen to be the citizens of a war torn country.

Some countries have more weapons than they can use, why may I ask? Were we created to be destructive, what can we gain out of this misery, do we feel proud of ourselves when we watch children crippled for life and worse yet crippled and orphaned, just to show we are powerful, will there be a phase in our life when we are no longer capable of using these killer weapons, will it make us realize after all that destruction and horror, when we are left to agonize and wonder how could we participate in this horrible crime? 

I hope a day will come when war will be a thing of the past, we’d realize we are no different from the rest of humans. The color of our skin is light or dark depends on where we live, the same applies to languages, way of life , food and other things.

We are same otherwise we laugh when we are happy, passing of our near and dear ones makes us cry, we have our likes and dislikes, we eat what pleases our taste buds, we listen to our favorite songs and watch our favorite movies, we read, write, though the language is different our expressions are not that different.

Is it not possible to build a world where we love each other ?

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. It is true that war may bring us closer to suffering, and thus serve, in an unusual and powerful way, to awaken us to what is really important.

    All good wishes,

    robert
