    This word PEACE when I say it slowly and breathe deeply diffuses for me the anger, sadness, despair, frustration, helplessness that surface and to my disappointment quickly strikes out at whatever or whomever. PEACE is my heart’s desire and my hope for all, also my focus on what next we must do together to address the way we speak and speak out.
