A friend sent me this message of peace. She received this email from someone who knew someone who said she received this anonymous message about peace. I read it and was deeply touched by the wisdom of this message.
I had to share it with you because even though it is anonymous it doesn’t mean it is in some way less important. As a matter of fact, I would say it is very important and worth your time to read it.
I Want Peace
I want peace. I want peace everywhere, all the time, for everyone. Even for the people who don't want peace.
I want love to win, to be stronger than war, stronger than hatred. Stronger than fear.
I want an end to the madness of harm we cause each other because I can't take it anymore. Numbness is not the way to cope with violence. Numbness doesn't solve anything. And numbness only deadens the heart. It doesn't make anything okay. And it certainly doesn't stop the hurt. I don't want to be inured to violence.
I don't want children to be afraid
