have me stand by my friends in peace then I shall know what it is to be content.

Stand in peace with my friends. In this time of unrest, standing in peace seems unattainable. I recall the campfire song lyrics, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” This is an attainable goal. Each day it is possible. I know this because I am certain that peace begins within.
In light of the headlines today let me say, rather than burn the symbol of someone else’s beliefs in protest TODAY I will fan the flame of belief in my own heart and live peace outwardly in support of the diversity of our world.
