International Day of Peace

Today 9/21/13 is International Day of Peace.  I asked my daughter Micaela what was her definition of PEACE and she said: “That there is balance and harmony between people of the world. Where there is no war and everyone is peaceful towards one another”.  From the mouth of babes come the most simple of solutions.  When I look at these pictures of these  young girls I see hope. Hope for tomorrow. Lets start today Micaela! International Day of Peace.

I wonder what a perfect day in Darfur would be like…food, water, peace, home. My son Ellis has a shirt that asks that question…. Ellis how about if we ask this instead? “How can I help make Darfur Peaceful?” Today is International Day of Peace. Ellis and I will start today.
