Dona Nobis Pacem

Let there be peace on earth...
And let it begin with me.

When I have tried to think about what to write in a peace blog, I've been bombarded with images and memories, bits of songs, snippets of conversations, flashes of photographs.

And what I end up thinking is something I read on a bumper sticker put out by the Marynoll Nuns about 30 years ago.

If you want peace, work for justice.

If you want peace, teach the children.
If you want peace, feed the hungry.
If you want peace, hold the frightened.
If you want peace, be peaceful.

Let there be peace on Earth
And let it begin with me
