Day 40 Syria

I wonder if there will always be upheaval in the world?  In spite of all we have learned about the consequences of cruelty and combat here we are again.  It’s a terrible place to be –having to decide what is the right thing to do?  In these crucial moments before commitments are made and actions put into motion I remember a quote I saw in the Mahatma Gandhi exhibit last year in the Nobel Peace Museum in Oslo, Norway.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won.  There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall.  Think of it – always.”

    The US is not the police for the world; we cannot put boots on the ground or send in missiles for every conflict that raises its ugly head. We have sacrificed too many of our young men and women for causes that do not concern us….remember Vietnam? I pray that Syria can be handled diplomatically and not militarily.

    The thought of millions of people participating in a day of prayer and fasting for Syria proclaimed by Pope Francis was balm to my soul. This is the way to peace.
