War or Peace?

Standard

World peace begins with us…
If not us, then who?
Every day it is a choice–
Will I work for peace
or will I go to war?
It is in all of the little interactions–
with our spouses, our neighbors,
our children, the mail carrier,
the grocer, the stranger on the street,
the person ahead of us texting
instead of watching the light…
It is in the way we speak to ourselves,
the things we say to ourselves
that we would never dare to say to anyone else…
It is a choice:
Will you work for peace,
or will you go to war?
The choice becomes clear
when you remember
that world peace begins with you.
