|2013 CHRISTMAS TREE--PEACE!|
It seems, however, that the negatives have outweighed the positives. Terrorist actions and gun violence make the headlines each day. As I have been watching some reruns of the West Wing, it is disheartening to realize how little the world has changed from the fictional portrayal of conflicts to the real-life political conflicts today.
Ironically, with the United States celebrating the second inauguration of President Obama coincides with the MLK Day of Service.
In consideration of these events and in memory of the pacifist efforts encouraged by Dr. King, I decided to share a photo of this little "peace" gem from our Christmas tree.
This little Peace sign took a central place amidst the lights and garlands. The tree has been taken down but I have saved this card to use again.
Actually, after hearing all the disturbing news stories, maybe I will just keep this card in plain sight, for a reminder each day.
