GREAT THINGS START FROM SMALL BEGINNINGS
JENNIFER E. MASCARINA
Many people in today’s generation may share a common dream… A dream of “peace and unity”. Notice how our daily lives are affected by various events that may change our future. Peace is greatly threatened nowadays. We always heard news about terrorism, war, tensions coming from different countries, bombings and other events. What we are experiencing now are not only indication of uncertainty but it can even mean the worst. Have you wondered why all these things are happening? Look around and you’ll find the answer. Each day we see people. Among them are people who does wrong to their fellow citizen. Every day we heard from newspapers about crime and these frightened the people. We should help these people before they can cause harm and before it’s too late. We can be successful in attaining peace if within ourselves we can attain it. Having concern in the society is so important. The best thing that we can do is to report bad incidents to avoid becoming a hindrance of peace. This only show that peace simply starts in all of us. The biggest war is within ourselves. It is the ego that play the major role and we have to fight it. If there’s no peace in us, there will be no peace in this planet. If there’s chaos within us, there can be chaos in this planet.
