1776 ~ 2016 ~ 240 years of elusive peace in this very young country.
Constant violence, anger, hate, fear and war pervade our avowed journey toward peace and tolerance. Celebrations abound,even as those freedoms – which many have fought for and believed in- remain unattainable for most.
A resilient journey begins with an open heart, a longing for peace. The path is laid by each individual gift of peace,no matter how insignificant. Oh please, can we all really be instruments of peace, never backing down in the face of violent, angry attitudes?
Begin again and again ~ Being peace. And then…celebrate!
