“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix
I saw this on Facebook yesterday, as a status on the Mellow Mushroom Pizza Facebook page. I knew he could play the guitar like no other, but I have to say that I never knew Jimi was spiritually profound enough to make this kind of a statement.
It goes along with what many of us have said in our writings and conversations before: When the Jihadists decide that they love their children and grandchildren more than they hate the Jews, then we will have a much better chance for peace in the Middle East. When they are ready to quit sending their children into suicide missions and teaching their children that Jews are evil worthy to be killed over a strip of land that has no oil, then will they have a chance to succeed.
In our case here at home, when politicians begin to care about looking out after the welfare of their constituents without trying to enrich themselves and expand their own power base, then we will know peace and success. In both these cases, we are not there yet and we are not even close.
