"Let there be peace on earth..."

Don't know why this song came to mind this morning, but it is one of my favorites:

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let There Be Peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With ev'ry step I take
Let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

I guess I like it because of the sentiment -- who wouldn't want peace on earth. But it goes beyond that with the second line and the second verse -- let it begin with me. It's a lot easier to wish for generic peace, and a lot harder to look at those with whom I am not at peace and to make peace with them. But here's to hoping we are all moving closer to it, little by little each day.
