Peace Please
If ONE Mother's child dies
then the war is not worth it!
Would you have it be your child?

I feel extremely passionate about the need for World Peace. Having lived for a time void of personal peace, I realized there is truly no monetary value to replace tranquility.

I have many symbols hanging in my home, a reminder how privileged I am to reside in a Country where Peace is possible. A lifestyle honed, taught, and mirrored. How can you make your lifestyle more conducive to Peace?

Some people thrive on chaos, so how much peace do you need in your life? What would you sacrifice for peace?

I believe Peace starts at home, with me, then reverberates into the universe. My father was a peaceful man, even when provoked he took the high road. He ate lunch with the shunned homosexual, he proudly displayed framed prints of children from all nations, and fostered loving sibling relationships between his own brothers and sister as well as my brother and I. I'm so blessed that I was raised with his liberal perspective. For me that's the foundation of a peaceful existence!
I'm excited at the prospect of a new day!

Old hope is rejuvenated
The world observes
awaiting transformation

With p
eace their salvation Angels sing an ode of love
adorned by wreaths of expectation

Carrying visions of
peace Unity,
prosperity, and recovery



Faith, and promise are alive
in the sparkle of a child's eye

in the heart of a young adult venturing out
In the mind of the weary warrior,


Hands and hearts join together
with compassion and respect
for
alternative views and lifestyles
Striving for harmony


Blooming beyond imagining
Nectar of the soul
spews promise
to achieve success

nurtured by love and peace!
