Blogblast for Peace 2017

Today I'm joining hundreds of bloggers across the world in a movement called "Blogblast For Peace". Bloggers will unite in a global cry for peace in this annual event. One day. One voice. All it takes is one post. You can also join us by using social media. Post and share, anywhere you are online. It's that simple. Join us.

It's the 10th time I'm participating. In a world that seems to be divided by its religions I chose this theme. We experience terrorist attacks by extremists that use religions as an excuse for horrible acts taking so many innocent lives all around the world...
I believe all religions are in essence peaceful, but almost all have an extremist branch that act out under the guise of protecting their faith. There's a history of violence in the name of religions, but I don't believe that's what they all are about, or at the very least they shouldn't be.
I believe we can all coexist on our planet if we would all make an effort. I believe in interfaith dialogue: cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions/faiths and/or spiritual or humanistic beliefs, at both the individual and institutional levels. I see more similarities than differences, and like to explore those in a respectful way.

To everyone: I wish you peace! One moment, one step can be the beginning; one person can make the difference!
