P is for Peace

“Peace can happen in 24 hours....

just like war can happen in 24 hours.” 

                                               ― Sari Nusseibeh  سري نسيبة

Questions to ponder with your family and friends:

1. When you are super angry at someone because they believe something different than you, what does your Unitarian Universalist faith call you to do?

2. If you were in charge of the military and could do anything so that peace surrounded all begins, what would your action plan be?

3. Life is like the ocean, going in and out with rhythm of the universe. Today what would you like to give to the ocean so it is washed away, and what would you like to save in a bottle as a memory?
