Youth Views: “Go home and love your family.”

Reflect on the following:

 “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

— Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Family is the most important thing to me. I believe we should cherish every moment because we will never get those seconds of our lives back. If we continue to love our families, we will be showing others how thankful and grateful we are that God has blessed us with them.

I can help promote world peace by showing all of my friends and family how much they mean to me. I hope that others would do the same so that all people would know how much they are loved by others.

Loving your family is a small thing that can make a big difference. Showing appreciation for loved ones can give them courage to do it for someone else. If this pattern continues the world may become a peaceful place.

We should all respect and love our family members. They should be close to our hearts and bring joy to us.

By going home and loving your family, you are doing what God has asked us to do. By not fighting with a family member, you are keeping peace. Also, this quote can relate to God and His home, the Church, which is our home. We are to love our family (our brothers and sisters in Church), which creates peace in the community.
