Hamilton: Children and people suffering because of selfish men

February 25, 2020

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

Lewis Hamilton has once again used his social media presence to advocate global peace and well-being – today, the reigning Formula 1 champion used his Instagram platform to call for an end to conflict in the Middle East, primarily Syria.

On his Instagram story, Hamilton wrote:

“Everyday I wake up and see the news on Syria. It’s been going on for nearly 9 years, why has the world stood by and let them [the Syrian people] suffer. These poor children and people suffering everyday because of selfish men, countries not doing anything to help them. This is so sad. Praying for the people out there “

People going to church this Christmas believe God is a powerful force for good in the world and he, or she, sometimes works in mysterious ways. Christians, whose faith is founded on the redemptive event of Christ’s crucifixion, can readily believe that good can grow from tragedy.

New Zealand this year has experienced a most appalling tragedy. The slaughter in March of New Zealand Muslims at prayer in two Christchurch mosques had a profound effect not just on this country but the world.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life…”

June 22, 2017

The Living Jesus

13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:13-17King James Version (KJV)

“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

Pope Francis: Why the Only Future Worth Building

May 9, 2017

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

“I dream with a passion for the reduction (even slight) of hatred in today’s turbulent and uncertain world.”
