Can you hear the silence?
Give Whirled Peas a Chance was a popular bumper sticker on human cars a few years back. It is, of course, a play on the words Give World Peace a Chance. Today is the day to do just that; International Day of Peace 2015. Whether you make up with someone after an argument, send a comforting email to one who is experiencing difficulty or, perhaps, just say hello to the checker at the grocery store...you know, the one who looks a litttle weird to you...it's important to mark the day with some random act of kindness. I firmly believe that the world's governments won't bring about peace without each one of us doing our small part to show them that it can and must work. Without our seemingly small, inconsequential daily acts of kindness, what reason do they have to try and make it work on a much larger scale? Human politicians reflect back a lot of what they see happening. I know this is an over-simplification of reality, but I do believe that humans, as individuals, can do great things. And, well, when banded together...anything is possible. And that includes a lasting and permanent "whirled peas." Go out and do something peaceful and joyous today!
