Peace Begins In The Home And The Heart
Peace is not something you fight for
with bombs and missiles that kill,
Nor can it be won in a battle of words
man fashions by scheming and skill.
For men who are greedy and warlike,
whose avarice for power cannot cease,
Can never contribute in helping
to bring this world nearer to peace.
For in seeking peace for all people,
there is only one place to begin
And that is within each home and heart,
for the fortress of peace is within.
The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.
(William Ross Wallace)
