The peace messenger: a poem from Canada

dove-peopleThe peace messenger says

There is as much hunger for peace in this world
as there is for bread.
War starves us all.

There is as much love in the home of your enemy
as there is in your own.
Love unites us all.

There is as much need for understanding
in this world as there is for forgiveness.
Reconciliation can save us all.

To satisfy the worlds hunger for peace
we must feed ourselves with good judgment,
we must feed our governments with good advice,
and we must feed all others with tolerance, goodwill, compassion and

We must make our voices more powerful
than the most powerful weapon on earth.

We must and we can make peace now!
