Peace in our Time

Peace in our Time

“If we have no peace, it is because we have
forgotten that we belong to each other.”
--Mother Teresa


I just read some good news,
which does not appear daily.

Last Monday in NYC
between
10:30 pm 
& 11:30 am,

there were no
shootings,
stabbings,
slashings,
beheadings
or murders.

Of course one teenager
did accidently shoot himself
in the thigh. 

Police can’t remember
the last time this happened.

Wonder how Detroit
did that day?
