From the time I was born to now, there have always been wars; but there were also people who were trying to end discrimination, and trying to be good stewards of the earth.
There were so many causes, “voices” trying to be heard.
I remember going to various churches, and back then it was the only time I felt calm during those tumultuous times in the USA.
As soon as I heard those voices singing, whether it was gospel songs, hymns, chanting or folk songs, it was those voices that gave me peace.
So, when I dream of peace, there are always voices involve. My most common dream is a wonderful saxophone playing on its own and voices of people from all over the world singing, in their own languages and these harmonious voices sends chills through me and brings me to tears. Maybe it’s naive and idealistic, but…
Yes, I have a dream…too…to live to peace in a diverse world community. It’s a prayer that I hold close to my heart. It’s time…to lift every voice and sing…Peace to everyone, everyday in every way.
