Time to Unite Again for Peace
I am sure that as you read
these lines you would agree with me that the world needs more than a little
help when it comes to peace on the planet.
I am usually very optimistic
when it comes to trying diplomacy rather than weapons, but from what I see and
read about the Middle East, Ukraine, Russia, Africa, United States, it seems
that diplomatic efforts are not having any meaningful effects lately.
