Be a piece of peace


Kozo at Everyday Guru’s recently posted ‘We Can Make a Difference – Right Here, Right Now’ .       I believe we can and what better time to start than the night before Christmas?

Here are some thoughts on peace that have synergy with my own – hopefully they strike a chord with you too.

“Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth; Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust; Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace; Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe” –  Satish Kumar.

“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal”  – John F. Kennedy.

“Peace may sound simple – one beautiful word – but it requires everything we have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal” –   Yehudi Menuhin

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, there would be peace” –  John Lennon.

So why not give it a go…. all we are saying is give peace a chance.
