So must peace come

''Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day.'' - Benjamin Franklinm So must peace come, not by the momentous stroke of pen on paper - a peace treaty, an arms limitation, a nuclear freeze - but slowly, silently, from every inner heart whose prayer for peace is a nugget of gold dropped into the center of the world's desire. The ripples move into wider and ever wider circles until one day they will have reached around the earth and come again to their beginning. Then peace will cover the earth and the seas and reach into the farthest eternities of space. So must peace come from the heart of everyone.
