DONA NOBIS PACEM

How wonderful that the letter for ABC Wednesday should be P as today is Blogblast for PEACE Day. .....
There's a name for war and killing there's a name for giving in when you know another answer, for me, the name is sin but there's still time to turn around and make all hatred cease and give another name to living and we could call it peace. And peace would be the road we walk each step along the way and peace would be the way we work and peace the way we play. And in all we see that's different and in all the things we know peace would be the way we look and peace the way we grow. There's a name for separation there's a name for first and last when it's all for us or nothing for me the name is past but there's still time to turn around and make all hatred cease and give a name to all the future and we could call it peace. And if peace is what we pray for and peace is what we give then peace will be the way we are and peace the way we live. Yes there still is the time to turn around and make all hatred cease and give another name to living and we can call it peace.

Wow Ruth, this is a great post. I could not agree more with you on the need for peace.
I have been involved in two wars - both of which could have been avoided, but for the intolerance of man.
It is always heartbreaking to see the aftermath and the suffering among the civilian population. This is brought into our homes by TV, so we all know what is happening.
Yet the carnage continues.
Sue and I watched a movie called Bobby the other night - about the events leading up to the assination of Robert Kennedy. What a visionary and an advocate for tolerance and peace. It made me wonder how world events would have turned out had survived to be president.
