PEACE Amidst Diversity

I have come to an end—for now—of the personal definitions of PEACE. But, we all can continue to strive for PEACE.

Here in Morton Grove last Friday, I hosted a Peace Breakfast for religious leaders and government leaders from our Chicago suburb and the neighboring suburb of Niles. It was a great opportunity to come together, talk about our multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-lingual community.

This was a natural outgrowth of my Pursuing PEACE Project. I wondered what I could do to encourage others to pursue peace, too. So, I thought of the Peace Breakfast. As I said, it was a success. Now, we can take the momentum we generated and put it to good use. Keep it going! Be open to all kinds of possibilities. Keep pursuing PEACE.

We all live in the same community. We have so much in common. Look forward with hope and expectancy. Expect hope and harmony!

Please, God, may it be so.
