A Place to Celebrate

This morning, I took a moment to remember the events of September 11, 2001 and what those people in the planes and in the buildings must've experienced. I said a prayer for them all and prayed that one day soon we would all live in peace.

Until we end war we will never find peace.

Until the wounded egos of those with power are healed so that they find peace within themselves and can thus allow others to live as they choose, there will be war.

Until we stop recognizing the differences that divide us as "a colorful rag is unfurled" before recognizing the oneness we all share as part of the human race we will never find peace.

Now is the time to put aside our fears, our hatreds and reach out to one another and live in peace and live from love.

You may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only.

Until we meet again
Ed Straker
