Peace Day

Today is the day that the Blog Blast for Peace phenomena takes place once again.

I completely forgot until early this morning, while still in bed, that I should make a post today.

I've been spending a lot of time watching discussions about Morgan Dana Harrington, pictured on my sidebar. In a way, it seems to sum up the way I see the world in relation to peace.

There are a few sleuths who are dedicated to bringing Morgan home. They don't care why she left the arena. They don't care how short her skirt was. They don't care if she was or wasn't drinking, smoking, taking drugs and they don't care what her intentions were. All they care about is figuring out how to find Morgan so she can come home. To me, they are the true peacemakers.

They outnumber the naysayers, the ones who assume the worst, the ones who want to judge Morgan's friends, parents, and Morgan herself. Those people are like mosquitoes buzzing around annoying everyone else while they're trying to make headway.

That's a very simplistic view, I know, but how much more complicated is it, really?

In this world we have people who hold a vision of how life can be; a grand vision. These people want to get together and bang out ideas on how to make that vision a reality.

Then there are the mosquitoes buzzing around saying it can never happen and then they begin to lay blame and point fingers and explain just why it can never happen.

I believe the peacemakers outnumber the mosquitoes.

I wish Morgan's family peace, love, strength and hope. I wish the same for Morgan as I hold out hope that she is alive and wants to come home.

I wish it for us all.

Holding hope with you for Morgan. A missing person is a missing person - no matter their lifestyle.

Peace to you.

Oh Lisa,
You are such a dear hearted soul...every time I look at your blog and see young Morgan's lovely face and blond hair I think of my two blond angels and feel gratitude that they are safe...and simultaneous grief and longing for her parents. How can anyone judge a girl so young harshly?

I pray for a peaceful, return of Morgan to her family...whole and unharmed.
xoxo
Laura
