The song by Vince Gill is often reserved for Christmas, but it seems appropriate as we remember not only those who died on September 11, 2001, but soldiers and others who have died for the cause of peace before then and since then.
As individuals we cannot change the present or future in dramatic ways, but we can be more caring and peaceful in our own lives and with those we encounter every day. We may know that there will likely never be peace on Earth, but we can wish for it, pray for it and work toward it. Let There Be Peace On Earth. (See the four little arrows at the bottom right of the You Tube video? That’s so you can expand Peace on Earth to full screen size! Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do that in real life?)
