Dona Nobis Pacem

Last year, at this time, I posted here for last year’s Blog Blast For Peace. The post was sad and filled of lost hope and desperation. But it was still a cry for peace.

This year, there is no desperation. Only hope. No worry about how I will pay the bills, no living in a box behind K-Mart… Just hope.

Hope for a world with peace. Hope for a day of peace.

I know now how little peace there is. I spend every day with people who have no concept of peace, people who cannot even fathom a world full of peace. People who have murdered, raped, assaulted other and sold and used drugs. These people could care less about peace, which only makes me want it more. Despite the desperation of last year being with no job, wouldn’t it be super cool if the world was at peace and there were no more prisoners to worry about?

On this day, let us all take a moment and feel the peace in our lives…

Peace in knowing we have family
Peace in knowing we have jobs and can pay the bills
Peace in knowing that there are others out there sharing this peace today.

Today and every day…
Dona Nobis Pacem
