Let there be peace on earth, And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth.. The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father.. We are family.
Let us walk with each other.. In perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me.. Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment And live each moment With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth, And let it begin with me
This beautiful morning, as I look out my window, I simply can't imagine what is going on in Arizona. It's so peaceful here...hard to believe that a few short hours ago it was this way in Arizona...what happened? None of us know the exact details, but we hear all kinds of talk on TV and radio. It's really a sad day for America...and for all of us. We really have to put a stop to all the hatred and bigotry in our world. We each must find a small thing that we can do to make our world more tolerant. Just imagine if everyone did a small act of kindness everyday...I hate to get preachy here, but maybe some need to find a Church or Synagogue or Mosque to visit, or maybe visit someone you don't know in a nursing home, do good things for a hospice, use your knitting skills for shelters, cook food at a homeless shelter, help build with Habitat, or if you can't do those things just bake cookies for your next door neighbor, that you have never met. Most of all bite your tongue when you are going to say something unloving. So, as I sit here and look out my window at the peaceful scene, families are caring for injured loved ones, some are grieving for lost family, and a woman lies in ICU with a gunshot to her head.
I came back today...I have been in the kitchen making spaghetti and meatballs for our dinner. Joe has had CNN on and I have been listening from the other room. I am just a simple woman with maybe a "Pollyanna" view of things. I admit to this...I am always the one to have a more optimistic view. I always seem to look for the "silver lining." After all the "talk" on TV today, I find that it's the same as before. Whenever there's a tragedy...they say the same things. I only wish that more people could do something to prevent this heartache in the world. I replied to a comment from Sherry from Arizona. I told her that when I heard the news of this shooting, the first ones I thought of were my blogger friends in Arizona. We are a close community, even if we never meet each other. I think that we can help so much with what we put on our blogs. Balisha
