Big Fat Joke

Daily Draw: Haindl Tarot ~ 2 of Swords

Peace. A state without war. Was there ever? There are 710 peace antonyms, 790 peace synonyms 779 terms related to peace. (Power Thesaurus) In the english language. How many more must there be in a world of languages?

This card with the sanctuary pavilion on the left reminds me the world was at peace in 268 years out of the last 2500. We have military troops in 130-150 countries as we speak. Peace? Not in our lifetime and certainly not via US involvement in any way, shape, or form.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading."  unknown

  1. Good grief, what a quote (but oh so true). We've become experts at talking about peace, yet seem unable to put it into practice.

  2. Even inside ourselves, we often have warring factions, no wonder the world cannot manage better.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
