Dona Nobis Pacem

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Let's not have to explain to future generations why peace might have been - let's make it a reality now!

  18. Peace to you Linda!

    The more apropos quote is the one from the general...who saw the worst of war up close, and he didn't like it. He knew the worst of war, and could understand why a yearning for peace should manifest amongst peoples...
