Dear Chief Executive Officer, The WORLD
I am writing to you today to express my concern about the way people on Earth treat each other. When I see the news each night I find it incredibly hard to imagine what it must be like for people in some parts of the world. I see innocent men, women and children being killed or badly injured on a daily basis. Often the violence is incurred by fellow-men and women who have different belief systems or there is a power struggle over land, minerals or borders. I am very fortunate that I haven’t experienced anything like that first hand. As CEO, do you think you could carry out a development program for all the people of the world, to learn how to get along with each other? I realise it is a big ask but it has to start somewhere. First you would need to work with people and their families – teach them how to get along together and to love and respect each other. They also need to learn how to respect each others’ differences and “live and let live”.
These are just some initial ideas. I am sure you can develop them a lot better than me. Once we have achieved progress with people and families living happily and peacefully alongside each other, then we can expand the program to the next stage – working with local communities. I am sure that you get my drift. We need to start small and build on what we achieve. No doubt there will be some set backs but, since humans are so clever at lots of things in the world today, I am sure we can overcome any barriers that arise in these communities. The program will then expand to help states and regions get along with each other and eventually we reach the ultimate aim of all countries having respect and love for each others’ citizens. I know we won’t ever have everyone thinking, believing and behaving exactly the same as each other. That would probably boring anyway. The real goal is to learn to love and respect each other, including our differences.
Just imagine what the world could be like if we could achieve that! Wishing you great success in this venture!
