...World Peace For Sale...

once again it was a rainy afternoon... so I was not able to go to the place I wanted to go and shoot some photos for this week's PEACE theme over at 365 Project.... so later in the evening, when the rain let up a bit, i took a walk around to see if something can catch my eyes that fits this week's theme... and this is what I saw.... and immediately, the thoughts below is what came to mind.... so am sharing here, too..


we do not have to look hard enough to be able to find World Peace being advocated everywhere/anywhere and just about everything... We see it in greeting cards... in commercials.... We hear politicians & beauty queens promising/hoping/praying for it... we see it in movies, televisions & books.... and we can even buy it through Licensed Products of all sorts - such as these little Gaspard et Lisa note books....

With all these being infused, one way or another, in our minds, thoughts & senses - isn't it, still a wonder why we cannot truly attain World Peace???

If only it was as simple as buying a notebook such as this...

NOTE: Photo taken earlier tonite at a Stationary shop...


"In peace sons bury fathers, but war violates the order of nature, and fathers bury sons."
- Herodotus

"There was never a good war or a bad peace."
-Benjamin Franklin

"Peace is not only better than war, but infinitely more arduous"
-- George Bernard Shaw

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
