In 2016 there was an interfaith event at the Ground Zero memorial in New York. The Young People’s Chorus of New York City performed “Let There Be Peace on Earth” – and it was truly inspiring and touched people to the core. I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the house, but I know that to see so many children lift their voices in peace and faith certainly touched me. This week, during a time when our world can be so turbulent and difficult, I wanted to share it with you.
I hope it offers a bright light in your week – and I wish you tremendous peace and joy as we bring this year to a close. I am here if there is anything I can do for you!
Something to Think About
“To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally – let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” There is much about the world we cannot change – but taking each moment and bringing our own little bit of peace and kindness to the world is something we can all do, don’t you think?
Share the video, the message – and the peace with your family and friends!
Words of Wisdom
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie
Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth. Menachem Begin
For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Ralph Waldo Emerson
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. Jimi Hendrix
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come. Henri Nouwen
