I know it seems like a long shot sometimes, especially if you watch the news, but there’s a chance peace will come.
Taking a chance with something I’ve seen before, I don’t know where, here’s what’s coming to me:
If we want peace on earth,
That comes from peace among nations,
That comes from peace among neighbors,
That comes from peace within families,
We need to find peace within our own minds
Within our own hearts
One moment at a time,
Who remembers Melanie?
This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday Post was “piece/peace.” If you’d like to join in the fun, visit:
The Friday Reminder and Prompt for SoCS April 18/15
Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. Have fun!

I agree with this. The skills of peace must be learned individually before they can be applied collectively.

We do what we can to send ripples of peace out into the world, hoping they will touch souls.

This prompt and your post reminded me of Let There be Peace on Earth. Very similar to the lines you have spoken about. Thank you for sharing the link.
I had performed to it two years back in my chorale group – Goosebumps in the entire auditorium. Some tracks really do this right?

Yes, it is one if those goosebumps songs. I sang it at a peace day celebration. A few years ago. Thanks for the beautiful video!

Peace is already here…we just have to recognize, embrace, and just KNOW it deep within ourselves.

Excellent point! Some people do have a hard time with this, but there is that place of peace within everyone.
