Anything war can do, peace can do better.**


While you are proclaiming peace with your lips,
be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
- St. Francis of Assisi

I had no idea it was Peace Day.... I feel so ashamed now... and wonder why it is not bought more to our attention in the media and such like.

Two really good quotes

St. Francis had it right -- we can say it, but we need to mean it and to live it.

Thanks for stopping by,Mlle. Noni. I am running so far behind today that I only put up my Peace Day post (just a pix) at 5:30pm! Eek. Back to what I'm supposed to do which is...to work for peace (in a bit of the world, anyway).

ciao!
