Families and our nation in need of peace

Published: Saturday, June 21, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

When our children and youths grow up, they will be prepared for war. They witness their dads, brothers, friends, mothers and sisters, come home able or disabled. What sad and mournful times. Death and grieving confront the loved ones.

Hollywood is not concerned. The TV networks don’t care. The more bloody the battle, the greater the violence, the more picturesque horror of death and pain. Hey, that was entertaining.

In the theater or in the living room, it was so entertaining for the family, children, youths, mom and dad (if they’re home) and elders. Is it entertainment or brainwashing our young? Has life no value? Is abortion a good example?

In fact, 2,000 and some years ago, a host of heavenly angels sang “Peace on earth, goodwill to each other.” Christ was born, the son of God.

Pray for peace among families and nations.
