Dona Nobis Pacem


I am a peace blogger, because like Mimi Lenox, I believe words are powerful.

In today's hothouse political climate, where some Presidential candidates like to trumpet their machismo and their eagerness to talk tough and "stare down" other world leaders, it might be helpful recall that this is how an American President addressed the United Nations in September 1963, at the height of the Cold War.


It was that approach that brought the world from the brink of disaster in Cuba a year earlier.

It's been said that Americans vote their wallets, that the economy is a principal motivator when we go to the polls. I hope everyone who sees this will also think about what kind of world we want to live in, and how who we elect as President will help shape that world, when we vote.

  12. I guess sometimes we go through eras when striving for peace comes from the top down. We must be in an era now when we have to strive from the bottom up.

    Peace to all!
