Peace Blitz Hop and Giveaway!!!

 Please be sure to visit all the stops!

So who do I think is a great symbol for peace? I actually thought about this long and hard and came up with the perfect person to write about:

I hear the groans and the WTFS?  But please, allow me to elaborate.  For those of you that have never seen a Batman movie or cartoon, please watch one and you'll see why I choose him as a subject matter.  Yes, there are great men across the world that have done wonderful things, such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King.  So why with these previous examples would I choose to write about a fictional character?  One that has certainly never made an impact on the world?  Well step back because if you believe that, I hate to tell you your wrong.  Batman appeals to the most important part of the world:  Our Youth.  Our youth won't be moved by long speeches and great deeds, not until they are much older.  But as children, they can appreciate the fact that Batman will always save the day.  Someone that begins the mold to greatness by aspiring our youth to WANT to become peacemakers, and protectors of all that is good.  I have talked to many men over the years and have asked them what first inspired them to choose their present career?  Men I will name:  Mathew Lets who is a firefighter, Jamie Teal and Adam MacTrevish who both serve our military, Robert Morse who is presently a police officer and why?  Because they were inspired early on to heroism, by none other than the dark knight himself.  But why Batman?  Why not superman or wonder woman?  Simple.  Batman is 100% human.  He truly is iconic symbol for peace.  Hat's off to you Dark Knight and may you continue to inspire future generations of our youth towards peace.  As I watch my daughter run around the room in her cape and mask I realise that he already has.

World Peace would be a dream come true, but seems so far out of reach

I hope we achieve world peace someday. Maybe we're coming closer to realizing we're not so different from each other.


Amelia Curzon said...

I agree with you here. The youth are the answer!

I sometimes feel as if World Peace is a far fetched dream but then again my optimist sides pokes out and I have hope for the future.

Mel Bourn said...

World Peace is a dream that we all have. It will be far in the future as people are still hung up on differences.

Very well put!! My 7 year old just loves Batman. I always point out how he uses his brains instead of superpowers to help others. It's a great thing!

Thanks for the wonderful hop! World peace seems unattainable, but with many small steps working together, it is possible.

When I think of world peace, I am just hearing John Lennon sing "Imagine" in my head and it makes me smile. That man had it right with that shite, ya know. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com.
