Not Enough

Doggerel Dave

To wish for peace is not enough -

Answers assiduously sought

Should be, although extremely tough,

Crucial, or the result is naught.

    Wishful thinking and daydreaming have nothing over assiduous seeking!

      Got that right, Rik.

        Thanks back to our dialogue on your page.....

        Agreed, too many unthought suggestions by those that don't understand the situation. However, even with well thought out answers there come the problem of implementation.

          Thanks Soren. I can't provide a solution/advice for the whole world, but in the case of so-called western democracies, it is for the population and/or those in influence to hold their governments accountable. Successes scarce, many setbacks. Name names, eliminate 'we' from the dialogue, and above all eliminate hopes or prayers.

          Like it. Peace achieved must be followed by peace maintained.

            Thanks H; and peace maintained can only be achieved if the lessons of long form history (I once used the term deep history, but many did not understand this) are carefully analysed and acted upon.
