What In The World Is Going On?08 / 03 / 2014
Tomorrow August 4th marks the 100th Anniversary when Britain declared war on Germany in 1914 and because of Canadian ties with Britain, Canada was at War with Germany as well. This will forever be a very dark chapter in world history, but I fear we are embarking on another.
Back in the mid 1990’s, disillusioned with what was happening in the world, I remember tuning into the news and learning of the assassination of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. I could hardly believe it. This was a man who had won the Nobel Peace Prize, this was a man who approved the Oslo Accords, this was a man who abandoned force in favour of negotiations to achieve Peace with the Palestinians. This was unbelievable. What in the world was going on?
They say the more things change, the more they stay the same. Again, I am disillusioned with what is happening in this world, and again I find myself writing.
What In The World Is Going On? Where are we going to? I don’t know…but we are all “Human” and I pray for Peace.
