Over the last year or so with the tensions rising between North and South Korea as well as the United States and even China, I was starting to feel like we were on the verge of another war.

I think yesterday's meeting that took place in Singapore between President Trump and Kim Jong Un was a huge step in the right direction I have to say I am feeling better. Now, before you start going off on me shut up and read the rest of this. I'm tired of everybody being so negative about everything. I'm tired of people being negative in general.

People are already saying how this is never going to work, Kim Jon Un is a liar, his country is nothing but a bunch of liars and then other people saying that Trump is just trying to sweet-talk him to get a better deal. Let's give the benefit of the doubt and show a little hope. Can't we a least be a little positive to show our support that we want this to happen?

I think everybody in the world would like peace, except for maybe the people we're fighting in the war on terror. Other than that, I don't think anybody really wants to live in fear.

So maybe this doesn't work out, maybe they don't destroy their nuclear weapons, but then again maybe they will. Either way, I think it's definitely a step in the right direction to cut out all the middlemen and just have the two leaders sit down and meet with each other.

I don't think any harm was done by just meeting, even if nothing comes out of it. It shows that we are willing to work for peace. And, it shows that we are willing to negotiate. Now, if we could just get our politicians here in the US to be able to negotiate in good faith regardlessness of party lines and party favors. I think we would all be better off.

I've also seen where people were saying that the United States should not have given anything up to work out a deal, and to that I say there has to be a give-and-take.

I applaud both leaders for at least meeting face-to-face and I pray that Kim Jong Un keeps his promise and the world sees a big difference. Are there human rights abuse in North Korea? Yeah, I think they have proven that. But maybe this is a step towards fixing that as well.

Try having faith for once instead of being no negative. It might actually work out after all. Like John Lennon said' "All we are saying, is give peace a chance"!
