TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY'S OWN CRAIG GLAZER CALLS FOR WORLD SUMMIT ON PEACE AMID TROUBLED TIMES!!!
There are a great many visions of world peace and where we go from here given so much recent drama and tension . . . Today, our pal Craig Glazer shares his INSIGHTFUL view on how to save the planet and all of the people inhabiting it:
Craig Glazer: Is It Time For A World Summit On Peace!!!!
At the start of the Republican Convention, Rudy Giullaini gave the tough guy speech including, "We know who you are and we are coming to get you!" Melania Trump gave the "I love my husband and I love America" speech and it too went well with the audience and media viewers. Other than his 'rock star' entrance, Donald Trump was brief and almost presidential. Overall a win for the Trump campaign. However he continues to trail Hillary Clinton by about 4 points in most polls. It's close and the convention will give him a boost in the polls. Yes Trump can still win, its uphill but so was his winning the Republican nomination to be president. World turmoil and civil unrest are now his battle-cry and could elevate him to the white house if things continue to go badly as they have worldwide.
More important perhaps is there a solution to the extreme violence with terror and now civil unrest in America? I have been hawkish about the middle eastern issues. So have many Americans. Seeing these weekly attacks is hard to bare. I'll never forget or forgive the beheading of Americans over there. Beyond belief. Sickening.
HOWEVER: Rather than wage more war and even looking at lord forbid at some point a nuclear attack by us on an enemy...is it time for a WORLD SUMMIT ON PEACE. I am thinking this may at least for the short term be an answer. President Obama could arrange such a summit with all world leaders including our enemies of course. Lets ask them this: WHAT IS IT YOU WANT? Can there be a cease fire a call to end terror attacks if some moves are made by all? I think its worth a shot. At least we can say we tried with our allies to find a peaceful solution to all this hate. We all know its based on 'the haves vs. the have nots' that is the brainwash behind the so called religious war. We have everything they have nothing. It's always based on that. Yes its clothed in religion or territories but in the end its 'you guys have it great we don't.' We are the haves. We all know that isn't always true, we aren't all rich,movie stars with big cars and homes but much of the world believes that we are so they hate us. Simple. It's Israel's fault, its America's fault, its Europe's fault..so on.
So with a world summit, it might just cool things off. Sitting down and listening to the other guys problems couldn't hurt. Yes I know the heads of the terror groups won't attend, but their nations leaders would and maybe a representative for them could be heard. Nobody has talked about this move and it makes sense at this point. Again what do we have to lose?
In keeping with this concept its also time to have a sit down on our own civil unrest. Black leaders from all groups including 'Black Lives Matter' and all black leaders that have a seat at the table in America can meet with law enforcement leaders, the President and try and see what can be done to 'STOP THE VIOLENCE' again it couldn't hurt anything. Why not?
Again there is no simple answer to any of this. We live in a violent world. Our leaders, our law enforcement and military have done a fantastic job of keeping 99% of us safe through our lives and our families lives. Today that number is not as big. In the end listening to both sides in a major summit could be a start of getting back to normal. Hey normal still isn't perfect but its better. One group that needs to be at both is SOCIAL MEDIA and TELEVISION MEDIA leaders. Today they play a huge part in lighting fires on both international and national violence. Yes they are in a large part to blame for fueling the fire and that needs to stop. We do have other forms of entertainment. Comedy for instance. Hah. So on that note lets see what can be done.
