Make me a channel of your peace. Why is peace so elusive? If it does not begin with me, where and when will it begin? It dwells in acts of compassion and kindness. It lives in attitudes of tolerance and acceptance. It breathes in those who are forgiving, generous, and caring. It is love, a helping hand, words of comfort, a gentle touch. It is active, not passive. Peace is precious, but it is there for everyone.It is quiet, but it can change all that it touches. "I give you peace, my peace I give you..." Would that mankind accept the gift of peace, how different the world could be. Yet, why does peace remain so elusive.....

John Lennon.
Funny how some dates and places where you first heard the news are engraved in your head. The murder of JL is one of them.
All he was saying was
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.

Thxs Tom I love poetry and thxs for commemorating John Lennon

Two quotes-

Golda Meir said "peace will come when we love our children more than we hate our enemies"

Rick Lippin said "the opposite of war is not peace-it is the creative process".

Be Well,

Rick Lippin
