“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
You know how sometimes you feel like all your thoughts are connected, one thought leads to another and that thought leads to many more, and you won’t notice that unless you actually stop for a second and think of it!
How did I end up thinking of peace when I was actually thinking of goodbyes? I will tell you.
“I think we can all agree that saying goodbye is really hard and sad, we might have different reasons for why we don’t like it, to me it’s because I always think what if i never get to see that person or those people again, and it’s really heartbreaking.
I wish if my family could just settle in one country, our country, and not have to travel to the opposite side of the world, doesn’t matter if it’s for education or to earn a living.
If all the countries were in peace, no one would have to travel except for holidays, maybe business trips as well but you get the point right!, if other countries weren’t so selfish and hungry for power, everywhere would be safe, they don’t see how much damage they’re causing, those selfish humans.”
I wrote that on my notes on September 29, 2018 at 9:34pm, I was on my way home from the airport where me and dad dropped off my little brother who was travelling back to Malaysia, and because it was hard to see him leave, my brain automatically started thinking, what if my country was in peace?, what if my government cared for it’s people?, what if every country stopped seeing other countries as baits?.
No one wants to live far away from their loved ones, no one wants to feel nostalgic when they know that they can’t go back to their home, no one wants to see their loved ones on a phone screen only, no one wants to be an immigrant.
I am not talking about any specific country or a group of people here, I am just saying that it’s not the people’s fault, its not in their hands.
If only all countries were in peace.
