CCCB 37 (2)


As 2010 comes to a close, we in America still find ourselves at war. Not often in my lifetime, if ever, has there been a New Year's Eve where we did not pray for peace.

In my youth it was my peers who died in such great numbers, and now my friends' children, and my children's friends.

Some say we can find peace within ourselves.

As mothers we can become the greatest forces of all for peace - teaching our children love and tolerance, accepting differences, playing fair, telling the truth, performing secret acts of kindness with never a whisper to others.

Let us take one step closer to peace by being the best we can be in 2011.
