Peace Through Connection
So what is it that can be a starting point towards peace? Common ground may be that link to understanding others and reducing fear of the unknown. A small shared interest between strangers can open discussions and hopefully lead to other stepping stones toward friendship. A connection.
It should be a simple step to reach out to another and compare experiences shared by others. For instance, what mother can resist talking about her children and some hilarious episode. Others may have a similar incident. Common ground can be found over something as innocent as potty-training or picky eaters. This can be the beginning of a friendship, and further sharing. And understanding of differences. A connection.
Although I have been blogging for only a few months, I see the power of connection that it has. I personally would like to share more common experiences with people of different cultures. This will be my committment and effort towards understanding. I’m not that naive to expect a ripple throughout the world, with overtones of world peace, but it is something. And every little bit helps. A connection.
So look out world; I’m trying to connect to people different from what I know. If each person made one small connection, think of the possibilities!
I am a mother, avid reader, quilter, crafter, and adore my cats. If you have similar interests in a different culture, let’s make a connection and start bridging that gap.
