A Common Hunger

Yesterday on the Bulldog Manifesto, he quoted President Dwight D. Eisenhower. I was particularly impressed by the first part of the selection of the speech quoted.

No people on earth can be held, as a people, to be enemy, for all humanity shares the common hunger for peace and fellowship and justice.

This is an important commonality that we need to remember. We all hunger for peace, fellowship and justice. Looking at this fundamental commonality amongst all people, it is sad indeed that we have not created a more peaceful world.

If all people hope at some level of being for such a world, then there is hope indeed for the world and for world peace. Within ourselves then, we must battle against the resignation to accept things the way they are but rather hope and act to change the world to one that we seek.
