On Sunday there was a candlelight vigil in the little park two blocks from our house. I think nearly fifty people were there: friends, acquaintances, strangers, all from our community. All over the world, as it turned 7:00 where they were, people gathered to light candles and quietly demonstrate for peace.

When your children are young, you can never tell what will make an impression on them - you just do what you can and hope for the best. Today Piper (2 1/2) and I were walking past the park. Unprompted, she said to me, "We say peace. Daddy say peace. Mummy say peace. Benjamin and Thomas say peace. I say peace, too."
