Utopia Now


It is true that we are all human. None of us are perfect. Most of us have an idea in our heads or even in our hearts of what we would like to see. Some dream of a utopia, in which there is no fighting, no crime, no anger, no hunger and no suffering. It’s a beautiful thought for everyone to love each other and to accept each other for who they are regardless of their differences. It doesn’t just have to be an idea, or a dream. Some say it is impossible for us to ever reach that goal because we are human, and because we all make mistakes and because there are some, many even, who have their own motives. Yes it is true that there are those who would like to cause harm, or who care of nothing else, but themselves, but why should we allow that to stop us from loving them?

Love is a powerful thing. It may sound like a corny idea, or wishful thinking, but if someone is not willing to start, when will it ever begin? Must we wait until we die in order to see peace? Must we isolate ourselves on an island so that there is peace? I don’t think so. We can either choose love, or we can make excuses for why we need to watch our backs for fear of being stabbed in the back by our fellow man. We can choose to love, or we can choose to see everyone we encounter as a possible threat. We can choose to love, or we can let this life pass us by, with fear leading the way.
