As Memorial Day approaches, I find myself thinking about peace. And I wonder: Peace is a project. But is it a personal or a political project? And I am thinking or rather feeling that it is or should be a personal project. As Plato is reputed to have said: “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” But the living can find peace, the peace of contemplation, the peace of friendship, the peace of prayer and redemption or rebirth.
