REST IN PEACE
"Our goal," wrote President Harry Truman,
must be...not peace in our time...but peace
for all time."
Perhaps it may be an oversimplification, but
we would like to suggest that one of the main
reasons we are not presently at war with any
nation, is that they we and they do not wish to be.
We have noticed that our grandchildren, at times,
they play beautifully together, while at other times,
they have a compulsive desire to fight, and any excuse
will do.The leaders of our nations often act the same
Unless there is a change of heart within the leaders
of all nations and their countrymen, we suspect
President Truman's desired goal may never be reached.
We must come to see that real power does not lie
in armaments of war, but rather in pursuing peace
in and for all nations. May we rest in peace.
