Someday science may have the existence of mankind in its power, and the human race (may) commit suicide by blowing up the world. —Henry Adams…
One hundred years ago, Henry Adams foresaw the plight we’re in today. Some observers believe that people in positions of power won’t be able to refrain from the
awful destruction of a nuclear war. If we believe that the glory of the human spirit is our ability to choose our future, it’s important for us to refuse to agree. We must
do everything we can to prevent this murderous suicide of our species, and the first thing we must do is to choose to leave war behind us. Our slow progress on this
planet, from naked apes to technicians in clothing, has prepared us to make the noble choice of peace. We owe it to our humanity.
Among us who despair of our capacity to make this choice are people with brilliant intellects, They may not, however, be our wisest counselors. Each of us listen to the truth within our hearts; there lies the wisdom that we need. Let’s not confuse war with patriotism; we’re all citizens of the whole world, and war hurts our human family.
When my spirit is tranquil, I can listen to the peace in my heart.
