Even on this solemn occasion, I am very grateful for so many things in our world. My hope for you, dear friends, is that your days be filled with joy, peace, and light.
"In our joy, we think we hear a whisper.
At first it is too soft. Then only half heard.
We listen carefully as it gathers strength.
We hear a sweetness.
The word is PEACE.
It is loud now.
Louder than the explosion of bombs".
