These days, I spend a good deal of time thinking about peace. I’ve thought about how peace is active, something that requires energy and attention. I came up with the phrase, Peace Is Not Passive. I thought I was so clever. But it turns out that Hubert Humphrey already said it.
And this quote hangs near our front door. I see it every day and it reminds me that peace is something I *do* not something I wait for.
