Dona Nobis Pacem

Today, along with thousands of people all over the world, I am blogging for peace. If words matter, this is important.

People always talk about the human race as if we are warmongers, and yes, some people are, most notably those who make money and take power from wars, but think about it. How many wars have you personally started? For the most part, we (you and me, anyway) are peace lovers. We shy away from violence. Most of us don’t even start personal conflicts, though sometimes we do unwilling get involved in contretemps we don’t quite know how to end.

Although I don’t think we can do much on an individual basis to bring global peace, we can try to find peace within ourselves. If all on this earth were at peace with themselves and those they see every day, then our human world would be at peace.

And that is what I wish for you today — peace in all you behold.

    I was fortunate enough to have been born and brought up in London, England in the 1930’s. Fortunate that I experienced first hand the devastation and horror that war brings. Though still a child at the beginning, it left an indelible mark on my whole being. I abhor war and the misery that it brings.
    Yet throughout those years from 1939 to 1945, I learnt the greatest lesson of my life, the trust, the camaraderie and the power to face adversity with a grin, ( you may have notice in all my avatar pics); and also great pride in my people.


I'd love to hear what you have to say.
