Bloggers Unite for Peace

My comment:-   Having encouraged you to Blog and link to Facebook I must admit to being ashamed at witnessing so many bigoted statements in comments and discussions.
For many of us terrorist wars may be far away, yet this hatred harboured nearer to home is no solution. It is even more shameful that some World (and would be’s) Politicians seek to make personal political capital from these events stocking up hatred even more rather than finding real solutions.
Peace and Hope…….    a seasonal message that never seems to date

Just thought that this was a topical and another slant on Trio, this weeks Photo Challenge.  Click the link to see what other have submitted :-  https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/trio/
