I don’t understand why Peace isn’t an active verb. If we Love, we should Peace. I believe this.
I believe that this neighborhood Peaced. They looked at the ugliness and decided the way through it was together.
A few amazing things happened. One, they supported a couple who had been made to feel like “others,” not part of the group. Two, they came together as neighbors. Three, they moved, probably some of them beyond their comfort zone, to do so.
It’s a little story, probably a common one. In a world where we love bad news, here is sweet and uplifting news. Here is possibility. Here is change. Here is Peace. Hurrah!
