My Bucketlist WISHLIST for World Peace II
2016AD / 21st Century!
Wishing, hoping and praying;
Six thousand (6,000) civilians and militants were killed in Eastern Ukraine since 2014AD, according to CNN News today, March 3rd, 2015AD. "The report paints a picture of a 'merciless' devastation of civilian lives and infrastructure," said U.N. High Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. CNN refers to the war in Eastern Ukraine as a "Humanitarian Tragedy" which it is ! In Kobani, thousands were needlessly sacrificed as well as their city. Put yourself in their shoes and you would be hoping that your prayers are answered. I know that I would!
Speaking of tragedies, today, 3/31/2015A.D. I read an article on-line in which it was stated that Catholic bishops do not want to help immigrant girls whom are raped. Just awful!
On March 23rd, 2015AD in the 21st Century, a woman named Farkhunda "was beaten, hit by bats, stamped on, driven over, and her body dragged by a car before being set on fire," as reported by by BBC news on-line! The police in Kabdul did not stop anyone whom mistreated Farkhunda and believed that Farkhunda burned the Koran. She was raked through the coals; what is going on with the world?!!
I hope, wish and pray that there will NOT be a World War III and that the United States pull its troops out of Syria. However, as I read this morning's news (3/5/2015 AD) on Yahoo.com, the following was reported by Jim Rickards, the CIA's Asymmetric Warfare Advisior, "should the rise of conflicts across the Middle East and Ukraine serve as a warning sign that something much more dangerous is approaching?...the answer is yes." The answer should be an overwhelming "no!" PLEASE STOP ALL THE WARS!!!
February 23, 2016AD--In fact, I am quite distressed and tired of reading the world news on-line which speaks of territorial wars, troops, rebellious militia, famine, displacement, refugees, millions of Indians whom do not have fresh running water; I would love to know about more positive, uplifting news which is real as opposed to imagined, surreal which speak of whims of fancy which turn a blind-eye to tragedies around the globe whom pretend that "everything is ok" whereby the reality is that everything is NOT OK at all; why, the stock markets are volatile, entire countries are in recession, there are wars which have been ongoing which have led to the displacement of Syrians, Turks and Greeks to mention a few; what of the news reporters whom are right in the thick of it, let's say; are they dumb, deaf and blind therefore; which gods are they praying to anyway because anyone could see that the world is indeed crumbling into a state of shambles rapidly; why pray to "god" that does not seem to be listening (or consciously know) that there are world(s) which have experienced devastating floods (ie Louisiana, India, etc), the typhoons that always seem to strike in Japan lately, the world economies, the extinction of animal species and so, so, so much more (seriously); in addition, why are the worlds not at Peace but at war (Syria, Iraq, etc), why haven't the sick been healed by praying to 'god', why is there still so much hunger, diseases, homelessness, poverty, animal cruelty, etc (which is the primary reason why I do not attend church anymore>>I simply do not believe that there are 'angels', 'saints', 'a holy family', 'Jesus Christ' [and I am sure that I cannot be the only one in the world(s) that feels this way]<<BibiLuzarraga.
"In a startling interview Jim Rickards reveals that all 16 U.S. Intelligence Agencies have begun to prepare for World War III. Making matters worse, his colleagues believe it could begin within the next 6 months (September 2015AD)" Horrible!
I hope, wish and pray that our U.S. troops be returned honorably to their homes SAFELY and as soon as possible within the year 2015AD. I also hope, wish and pray that their families are waiting for them with as much support as necessary and that reserved military civilians will be happy in their employment, and will receive the benefits for which they apply and of course, that they, too, will live full and happy lives.
April 1st, 2015AD (21st Century) Iraq gloriously and victoriously defeated ISIS!!
Mother Theresa was right; isn't there a truly compassionate, selfless, peaceful, merciful, loving God afterall whom should be concerned with the issues of the world?!
April 2, 2015AD- Perhaps I should buy a large amount of Little Tree Car Fresheners (wholesale) and hand them out personally--they're lucky charms, if you will : )-Bibi Luzarraga.
A CNN Special Report entitled "Aethists: A World of Non-Believers" touched my heart and soul because I believe that the pastors of aethism are truly onto something--atheists are good people and are not Satanic (or perhaps they are?)
As a matter of fact, I found an article recently on March 25th, 2015AD entitled "Thousands Worldwide help write "Aethist Ten Commandments" which are very moral, kind and logical--very appropriate for this 21st Century. On CNN's Special Report, there was an interview with Mr. Silverman, the President of Aethists, whom founded Aethist TV which is broadcasted on YouTube and reaches approximately 25 million worldwide! [http://atheists.org/atheistTV/about]
April 14, 2015AD According to a news story today, "Israel among the least religious countries in the world." Another news story today wrote, "China ranked least religious country in world at 7% (who consider themselves) religious and 61% convinced atheist, Thailand ranked first as most religious country at 94%." Perhaps the next time that a religion poll asks residents of Italy, France and Greece whom have been Roman Catholic for quite some time, are found to be non-religious instead. Most obviously, times are changing.
Finally, it seems that the Aethist communities have concluded that there is no god nor goddess and I have too, being that I DO pray, however, I am not a hypocrite and do not attend an actual mass anymore.
Perhaps there never was a good "god"; in fact, I am convinced that there truly never existed a "good god, however, perhaps there is hope. In college, I was curious regarding many other faiths and would ponder, "why is that so-called "god" so cruel and wicked?" And, "why is that so-called "goddess so cruel and wicked, too?" Believe me, I was an avid practicing Catholic Christian that prayed, went to mass, believed in feast days and high holy days, saints, in the trinity of god the father, the son and the holy spirit.
Even while in jr. high school, I read books on theology from other religions to make sense of a truth, however, my heart and soul could not categorize myself in any. So, it seems that with millions of other people, I have become an aethist with a good, moral heart and soul because I am definitely not a criminal, nor an addict, nor envy anyone and never have, not proud nor arrogant albeit very kind and generous and soft-spoken as long as I can remember but belong not to any particular faith.
Anyhow, I have read that religions are political conspiracies which allude to scare tactics, curses, superstitions, myths, demons, etc. and come to think of it, I do not believe in Hell nor in damnation but I do believe in past lives, Karma and The Universe, as is necessary 95% of the time.
[December 16, 2015AD] "There is an emergency for the international community to act and take measures to protect the civilian population. The world needs to understand there absolutely is a genocide underway in Burundi, against a part of the population who is opposed to the third term, and there is an ethnic element to it," Minani told IBTimes UK, highlighting the lack of action from the international community.
Please click on this very critical link: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/burundi-help-us-world-needs-know-that-genocide-underway-says-opposition-1533280
I hope, wish and pray that Burundi will be freed from their horrific government today and as soon as possible may live in happiness and peace; especially before 2015AD end-of-year holiday festivities, AND may all the criminals be sought out and punished for deceit, corruption, torture, etcetera in the same aforementioned vein--BibiLuzarraga.
"Zimbabwe is seeking $1.5bn (£1bn) in food aid to avoid mass starvation in the country. As the drought worsens, nearly a quarter of the population in the landlocked southern African nation face the risk of starving to death.
Government officials are appealing to local businesses and charities to help Harare combat brutal hunger across the nation. Zimbabwean authorities estimate the recent drought, the most severe in 20 years, has left three million people without food."
Of course, I hope, wish and pray that the crisis will be addressed and alleviated asap-BibiLuzarraga.
Italian Police Detail Fraud in Public Contracts
Cited from the Wall Street Journal on-line:
"Italy’s financial police’s latest statistics about fraud and corruption in Italy’s public sector revealed that of the €4.6 billion worth of public contracts checked last year, they found €1.5 billion in fraud and €2.6 billion wasted."
Which in a manner of speaking, equals to nearly ALL OF ITALY'S PUBLIC SECTOR is corrupt and fraudulent!!! Thinking of it, the Italian mobs, The Vatican, etc. whom are known to be corrupt and fraudulent and launder their monies through public Italian sectors, to name one amongst many. Why does the word "Illuminati" come to mind?
To discuss the very destructive earthquake which occurred this past weekend on April 25th, 2015 A.D. where over 7,300 Nepalese individuals passed away, I hope, wish and pray that the Nepalese find peace, food, shelter, comfort, joy and happiness with the strength and courage which their hearts and souls obviously deserve--Bibi Luzarraga.
- The myth of religious violence | Karen Armstrong | World news | The Guardian
The popular belief that religion is the cause of the world’s bloodiest conflicts is central to our modern conviction that faith and politics should never mix. But, Karen Armstrong writes, the messy history of their separation suggests it was never so
Do not believe in anything which you have read and, pay close attention to that which you hear instead;
Let's say that I heard somewhere recently, do not believe in that which you have read; believe only in that which you hear because it may be good, sound advice :) Bibi Luzarraga.

Ironically, I have been praying, wishing and hoping for World Peace, however,
The island nation of Cuba and many Caribbean nations including South American countries do not seem to wish, hope nor pray for World Peace in their countries; after linking my HubPages to Google Analytics, I have noticed my hubs or, essays, go viral worldwide, however, I have not seen any interest from those aforementioned countries; ironically, those countries experience the most severe economic crises, poverty, hunger, homelessness, disease, sickness and other maladies; and Obama plans to travel to Cuba to meet with Castro which, may not be the greatest of ideas anyway; the question is, how will Obama's visit REVERSE, REVERSE, REVERSE any previous thoughts, words and actions-please feel free to comment on my essays-BibiLuzarraga.

March 21, 2016AD - "Nearly 19,000 people in Indonesia diagnosed with mental disabilities are currently living shackled in chains"-
"Nearly 19,000 people in Indonesia diagnosed with mental disabilities are currently living shackled in chains or otherwise confined to claustrophobically small spaces — one symptom of a national mental-health-care system characterized by systematic shortcomings and retrogressive science. That’s according to a new report released by Human Rights Watch on Monday morning local time; the report, succinctly titled Living in Hell, provides a grim portrait of Indonesia’s neglect and abuse of its mentally ill population. It pays particular attention to the practice of pasung — placing those with “real or perceived psychosocial disabilities” in “shackle[s] or locked up in confined spaces,” which persists across the country despite a national ban in 1977. According to the report, 18,000 Indonesians currently live in pasung, with viable mental-health-care alternatives either inaccessible or nonexistent"-why, why, why is my question-BibiLuzarraga. http://time.com/4265623/indonesia-mental-illness-chains-pasung-hrw/?xid=homepage
