Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day should also honor those who have pushed for peace in our fractured world. I know it’s quite idealistic to talk of peace in a world that’s seems to be always on the brink of war, but I really do think that what the people of the world want is PEACE. What I’d like to see is the leaders and their families get on the battlefield. How long would our wars last then? While I honor those who have fought for this country, I also honor those visionaries who have had a peaceful plan. Leaders such as Martin Luther King, and Mahatma Ghandi wanted peaceful change. Peace begins with each one of us, when we are more loving, forgiving, and accepting. LOVE heals the person, the community, the country , and the world.
