World War II
As the Joker once said, it takes one day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. I do not wonder about World War 2 itself. It was a war that most entered with intentions of benefiting themselves. Millions upon millions of people died. It was nothing short of a tragedy and despite the way it effected the world, its negativity outweighs its positive impact by tons. What I do truly wonder about is Adolf Hitler himself. What could have made this man such a monster? And how insane is it that one person can rise to so much power and lead so many people down the darkest route possible. World War 2 is something to study, however not something to glorify. I sit here on this website and study it, however my true interest lies in the evil itself. Imagine if a man this powerful and this influential had the intentions of bettering the world. How could world chaos be achievable if world peace is not? I believe, and desire for this world to be at peace with itself and with everyone in it. I wonder about Hitler’s bad day, I wonder what could of happened if it was a good day. It truly could have been that simple. I firmly believe in humanity’s beautiful vulnerability, and will never stop. I pray to God people do not see World War 2 as something worth glorifying, worth striving for because of its economic and to an extent, its societal benefits. I cannot fathom to live my life where there are men, women, and children being murdered in the world. I do believe world peace is achievable, and that is what World War 2 taught me. Because anything with the power to be evil has an equal power to be heroic, and if a man like Hitler was blessed with a different life, the planet we share could be a much better place. I do not want people to starve, to hurt, and to be enraged any more. The world has experienced too much of that through things as drastic and insane as a world war. It is inconsequential to write these words, as there is a small child in the Middle East with a gun to his/her head right now and I am not there to stop it. However one day, I will be. At the source of this, somewhere in the peaks and valleys, somewhere in the epitome, the climax of the world’s storyline, there will be love. And I seek every day, because of the history I have learned, to fulfil that prophecy for the world. Hitler was the best thing that never happened to the world, because a man with such power had an infinite amount of potential to damage this world in an incredibly beautiful way. For wasting this and for doing what he has done, I hate him. But what World War 2 has taught me is that the meaning, beauty, and destiny of this Earth and universe is not out of a single human’s control. That is inspiring, to say the least.
