At a time when people want peace and harmony, the world is seeing a rising number of conflicts. Literature is the way to heal the world and to restore stability.
There are armed conflicts in various parts of the world. Even in countries that are not ravaged by war, social and political conflicts are leading to division among people. Even within a family, members are experiencing divisions due to differences of opinions on social and political issues.
It is time to restore stability and to prioritize humanity. And for that, we need literature.
Literature–the fine works of poetry and prose–helps people understand human relationships. Literature allows people to be sensitive, and to develop compassion.
As we study the masterpieces from authors around the world, we read stories and poems that stir our emotions. From the stories and tales of the past, we learn the consequences of greed, jealousy, and rage. By analyzing the actions of the characters and narrators in the various works of literature, we understand the power of truth, honesty, and love.
In a world that is plagued by clashes and conflicts, it is important for people to pause, and to turn their attention to the study of literature. It is time to turn towards literature for a more peaceful world.
