Peace, Where Are You?

candle

Today there was another shooting.  Take a minute and let that sink in:   Another Shooting.  Why do we hate each other so much?  Why is it so easy to hate and so hard to love and forgive?  I wish I had some answers.  I have none.  I try to do my little kindnesses, hoping that they will spread little by little, like circles on a still pond.  I keep trying.  I can’t give up.  Don’t you give up.  We can’t let the darkness win.

The other night I sat down and listed songs for peace.  I’d like to share them with you now, if I may.

Songs for Peace

Reach Out in the Darkness

Abraham, Martin & John

The Man in the Mirror

What the World Needs Now (is Love, Sweet Love)

What’s Going On? (Marvin Gaye)

From a Distance (Bette Midler)

Peace Train

Turn, Turn, Turn

Give me love (George Harrison)

Let There be Peace on Earth

 

We are in desperate need of peace:  in our hearts, in our minds, our families, our neighborhoods, our towns, our countries and our world.

“But what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul? (Mark 8:36-38)  Huff Post

“Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace and reflect it toward others.”  Etty Hillesum

I wish you peace.

Cindy

    1. Thank you, Debbie. Your comments give me hope. I guess by reaching out to one another we can give each other support. The smallest light can pierce the darkness.
