This is the wish that most of us desire.  However, the free will of some is not  in accord with this idea.

World peace is a great concept.  It is unfortunate that it isn't a reality.

I wish there were more Peace in the world.  We can just try to bring more to our little part of it.  The more it spreads, the better the whole world will be.

Peace, that would be wonderful, but how can we do that unless we change ourselves. Families can't get along, so how can we expect the world to become peaceful. So much of the chaos is done in the name of religion. Golden Rule doesn't seem to be used. Our children seem to think that violence is the answer to a disagreement. I guess I am getting old. A book I am reading says that the religious and the old are doing the praying. I pray that there are young people in the world that pray too. Amen

What you say is true, people can't get along with there own family members and neighbors, how do you expect countries to get along!  No one follows or even thinks about the Golden Rule.  They took prayer out of schools, a lot of young adults would rather give you the finger instead of a smile, people have there heads against the cell phones or texting and so many people are oblivious as to what is going on in there community and country!

But then, the way the economy is in our country, people are tense because they wonder how are the bills going to be paid, how much money is left after paying bills so I can put food on the table, am I going to be able to keep my home so my children have a roof over there heads and they worry if there will be a job tomorrow or unemployed; then we all wonder why people can't get along. 

So what is the answer?!

At least there was one gesture for peace - the young men who had been held in Iran were released.
May more of these gesture of peace occur.

I agree ladies - if each of us sets an example and thinks peaceful thoughts instead of expressing jealousy, envy, etc. peace will come. We need to let the children be our guide. They are so forgiving and loving.

We all have to learn to live and let live and not try to force our ideas and values on others.Peace will never happen until every person learns this. Prejudice is a by product of fear and we all tend to fear what we don't understand or refuse to understand.I don't think human nature will ever allow for World Peace.
