Love is the opposite of war if we consider hate is what it takes to begin a war in the first place. There has to be total discontentment for a foe. Those who cannot find a peaceful solution to a problem turn to war by bullying their way to power, or to control a situation with self-interest at heart.
I don’t know about you, but it is difficult to believe warmongers always have everyone backing what often we can call madness. Take Putin as an example; do you honestly believe his people from Russia are totally behind him? Or do you think they are ashamed of his meddling in the fact of some ex-Russians’ dissatisfaction in Eastern Ukraine, and his confrontational belief that NATO in Ukraine would be a threat to Russia's sovereignty?
Instead, let’s look to peace and tranquility with Ukraine’s ‘Tunnel of Love’ that is a 1.8-mile-long rail route near the town of Kleven, Ukraine. This fairytale-like setting is a popular destination for lovers, since legend has it that if they make a wish in the tunnel and truly love each other, their wish will be granted.
A fascinating fact is that the tunnel was carved out by the passing train that delivers wood to a factory three times a day. Over many years, the train molded the tree line into the amazing green corridor it is today.
Love beats hate every day, as positivity undermines negativity. The secret is to have positive focus on the bigger picture and not to fall prey to the devil who will keep chipping away to get fools on his side.
