Can It Be That Simple?

Me vs. You

Us vs. Them

This is how it starts.

I'm Right

This is how it escalates.

Power

This is where we have the ability

To be different than anyone else in history.

Skills

We need to rise above what we have always done.

sit

 And be the difference this world needs.

Value

 We just need to figure it out.

But using methods we’ve long ignored

And ignore the methods we’ve long employed.

coexist

Can it be this simple…

peace

To hope for….

Prefer

From someone who wants to lead.

And make our time

A history to be proud of.

  1. I agree with Rus. This is wisdom. If only it could be this easy. I have come to the opinion that every business and home in the world needs to pipe in 528 Hz music and brotherly love and peace will be achieved! LOL! Seriously, have you read about it? It helped clean up the BP oil spill in the ocean, surely it can clean up the evil in this world.

    So moving Colleen…. if only more took this approach of openness and understanding instead of getting stuck at believing they are right!

  3. What a terrific cartoon Colleen! It is a shame that there are people in this world who refuse to see this vision.

    I think you are absolutely correct. It could be so simple. Sadly it is almost human nature to make such an exchange more difficult than it needs be.

  5. Magnificent Colleen. How easy it could be..now it’s a matter of if only..

    So little said yet the perfect message for communication, understanding and Peace, Colleen. ♡

    • Thank you Robin. I suppose it goes from individuals on up. But I REALLY wish the ones at the top would get it and trickle down!!!

        It would be nice if more people would take a page from some great peacemakers such as Gandhi and Mother Theresa. I feel no matter what one’s politics are, Jimmy Carter has spent his years trying to help mediate, moderate and bring about Peace.

    I wish the world understood this.

  15. I’ve often felt that enemy nations must have people that cherish the same things: their children, sports games, a good meal, a safe town, a good movie…
