Dona Nobis Pacem
In June of 1965 at Junior High School graduation my 14 year old self spoke to an auditorium of my fellow graduates and called ours "The Hopeful Generation." Among the things that I thought we had hope for was the curing of disease, the alleviation of poverty and the attainment of world peace.
At age 61 my hope is a little tattered but still there. I think we've made progress on all those fronts. But we still have such a long, long way to go. As long as there are still people who hold these goals we have a chance. That's why I love Blog Blast 4 Peace so much, it tells me that the dream is still alive and that there is still hope.
