Veterans Day Quote, Links to Memorial Poems, Peace Quotes

From Denny: Today is Veterans Day, a time of remembrance for so many things. There are few families that have not been touched by war through the generations.

Today's quote is actually one of my own as the quest for establishing Peace in the world takes time and the convincing of each individual - and continues for generations. While humanity is still in the throes of spiritual immaturity, it is difficult to deny anger, resentment, greed - the most violent of emotions that tend to lead to trouble.

Many honorable soldiers have died through the centuries for dishonorable politicians or monarchs whose egos would not learn self-discipline nor be curtailed.

I've included a couple of links to articles written this year on the subjects of War, Remembrance and Peace.



Quote

“Mankind must not only seek Peace. We must pursue it with all the deeply felt sincerity of our hearts. We must pursue Peace with the diligent work of our hands every day in every relationship we know. Peace comes a little at a time, rippling outward until one day it touches and convinces all.”

Quest for Peace

“Mankind must not only seek Peace. We must pursue it with all the deeply felt sincerity of our hearts. We must pursue Peace with the diligent work of our hands every day in every relationship we know. Peace comes a little at a time, rippling outward until one day it touches and convinces all.”
