Peace made the front page of the Observer today, Thanksgiving Day!
The Churchill High School students wrote messages of peace on colorful paper & planted their "seeds of peace" with bulbs around their beautiful peace pole!
Here is a link to the article:
I'm very thankful to all of the seeds of peace our group has planted for the last seven years! As we watch our seed grow, we can all be grateful for our commitment
to peace.

It is not just a person's physical constitution, their intelligence, their education, or even their social conditioning that enables them to withstand hardship. Much more significant is their inner development. And while some may be able to survive through sheer willpower, the ones who suffer the least are those who have a high degree of patience and courage in the face of adversity.
The Dalai Lama

Love is what we are born with. We don’t learn love; it is already etched in our heart.

However we do learn fear. Fear is the obstacle that blinds us to the love in our heart.
So to experience our love in its fullest authentic capacity, we must unlearn our fear.

Our spiritual journey, the meaning of our life, is the unlearning of our fears and prejudices, to reacquaint our self to the ever present beauty of the love in our heart.

Paraphrased Marianne Williamson
