I present this essay about what we should do for peace...
| This great nation of ours is living in constant fear right now; These days you cannot go anywhere without the fear of being shot, and that what has been happening in places such as El Paso, Texas, where 22 people were killed while 24 others injured, as well as Dayton, Ohio, where 9 people shot and killed while 27 others injured.
We wonder if we would ever be safe ever again; which is why politicians are urging members of Congress for stricter gun control laws. Should that work, maybe it should prevent future acts of violence. Oh, and we better not forget something else: Hate is rampant in America, as wrong as it ever has before. To me, hate is nothing more than something that's as serious as cancer, and just as deadly as snake venom. If we do not ever do something about removing any hatred in this country, then we are very well doomed of living in this kind of poison forever.
Oh, and I can't forget something else: The stock market going to you-know-what in a handbasket. As of this writing, the markets there is a fear that it could result in an economic slowdown, and all of us shall be reliving that same situation as we had a decade ago. You know, the President is saying that the economy is as good as it has ever been, but I am not sure of that…
All of these things are beginning to state that things are about to get very out of control, that is if something is not done very soon to correct every problem that we are enduring right at this very moment. If every American can find a solution that would make the stock market go up again and stay there, and that every politician can fight as hard as they could to make gun control a reality, then it is with hope that gun control laws, as well as background checks, would be the best idea in this here country to prevent future gun violence from ever happening again.
And if everyone in America, regardless of their age, race, gender or religion, would just get along with each other and accept each other just as they are, then there would not be any more hate in this world. The less the hate, the better we are at being better people.
Yes, we as Americans need peace, and the only way to achieve peace is that we work together as one, and to not ever poison our hearts with hate and greed. We do not know when that day would come, but we can get started right now by working together living life in peace, every single one of us.
