Peace on Earth. Three blessed words. We hear the phrase spoken, breathe the message. Why then, is it so difficult for human kind to live the credo?
Once children, we played by The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself. ” We grew up, we forgot.
Three words. A stretch of the heart; the pull a reminder to soften. Peace on Earth, an opportunity to show compassion toward another. We cry the same tears.
“Hush,” you say. A hand reaches forth, a light shines in darkness. “Walk with me,” is the whisper.
I cast a stone to the ocean. Who am I to judge? The waves lift and carry the offering
to land at your feet.
Do you see now? Connected, our actions ripple and roll from shore to shore and heart to heart. Stand with me. Hand to hand, our fingers weave together, arms reach around the globe. Peace on Earth.
The inspiration for this passage came from the Rifle Co.- Peace on Earth Postcard. As we move toward November 11, the Canadian Remembrance Day and American Veteran’s Day, I felt the message timely. Peace on Earth.
