A Peace Follow-Up

December 12, 2008

One more thing to add from the last post — I received this quote in my daily “Verse and Voice” from


Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world. 

– Etty Hillesum,
died in Auschwitz in 1943 at the age of 29. From An Interrupted Life, a compilation of her diaries and letters.

    Forgive me for barging in to ask you this, but if you get the chance, would you read a short story I posted ( and give me your feedback? If you can’t or would rather not, that’s fine too. Thanks.

    P.S. I love the Etty Hillesum quote. Amen Etty!
