peace is elusive
but sharing a loaf of bread
is something you can chew on (ML)
The struggle for world peace is something which people – politicians, poets, preachers, teenagers – understand. Peace, peace, and there is no peace. We are always fighting with one another, on the world stage.
Will it ever change? I believe peace can prevail. I believe peace starts in my heart, and I share that with my household, my neighborhood, and friends near & far. Gradually, the movement expands.
I was reading about a woman called “Peace Pilgrim” and noted in her quest a simple resolve – to spread peace. Peace Pilgrim is a real person. She wrote: “We who work for peace must not falter. We must continue to pray for peace and to act for peace in whatever way we can, we must continue to speak for peace and to live the way of peace; to inspire others, we must continue to think of peace and to know that peace is possible.”
Peace Pilgrim was a woman who spent her life walking to work for peace. She spread her message by the simple yet arduous act of walking. Wherever she went, people met her and seemed to really see her passion for peace. Here’s a little about her life:

This is a good time to remember that we don’t have to do incredible things to work for what we want to change in the world. We do have to make a decision, and we do need to persevere, no matter what. Think about it.
