The Sands of Time

the-sands-of-timeI created this because I’ve been thinking of how changes occur, slowly but surely, as sands does when it’s blown across deserts and forms new shapes and landscapes.

Each empire has always believed it was invincible yet the history of humanity is of empires rising and falling. And so we see cries of “Make America Great” or “Give Us Back our Country” in the UK, which really is a recognition – whether those making these calls realise it or not – that the American and British empires are on the decline while new powers are emerging to take their place.

This doesn’t make the US or Britain any less dangerous, however, as they gear themselves to fight for their empires and bring the threat of war to the forefront.

It simply means that we need to be alert, take notice of war-mongering, and organise to fight for peace and co-existence with our fellow human beings in other countries around the world.

No more wars and no more sacrifices of our young men and women. We need to build a world of tolerance and understanding to leave a healthy, benign world as heritage for future generations.
