Be an instrument of peace today and everyday

A few days ago,  I received an e-mail message from a friend,  encouraging me to pray for our soldiers who are in harm's way in Iraq and throughout the world.  I said a prayer,  because praying for our soldiers is a good start.  However, we must do more than just pray.  all of humanity must resolve to live peacefully and accept nothing less.  A prayer for our soldiers will be much more powerful when we decide to promote peace with every fiber of our being.  For many, that will require an attitude adjustment.  For world peace to ever have a chance, we will need a global attitude adjustment.

We must make war obsolete.

So when we pray for our soldiers, we should also pray that the hearts of men and women all over the world reject the notion that killing and fighting will ever solve anything.

The whole world needs to be free of war.

The notion that we must kill to remain free is a notion that must be challenged and changed.

The late Robert F. Kennedy said many times, (and as George Bernard Shaw was quoted):  "Some see things as they are and ask why?  I dream things that never were and ask why not?"

In the same sense, I dream of a peaceful world which has never been and ask why not?

Praying for our soldiers is a good start.

Prayer is always a good thing.

Let's all follow that prayer with a personal commitment to be an instrument of peace today and everyday.
