Picture Perfect: Peace
“Blessed are the peacemakers.” Peace is something we have to make. I look for a recipe. Maybe in Joy of Cooking? Pawpaws, peas, peaches, peanuts, no, nothing about peace.
A seasonal song floats through my mind, “pray for peace, people everywhere.” Could it come down from above? I look up; it is raining. That can be peaceful, soothing. Can we let our rancour, our grudges, dissolve as the rain carries away the mud?
Here the rain goes down the hill to the river where fishermen have built a footbridge, a private initiative, crossing borders, both natural and man-made since it joins two departments.
Like water under the bridge, let bygones be bygones. Build bridges between us. Another song—“let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
