The Peace Maker


of Pennsylvania Avenue

“We Want PEACE and We Are Willing To Bear Its Burdens!” ~~ White House Grounds in Time of War, 2006.

It is a simple thing to pin a black ribbon onto one’s breast or to carry a “peace” placard on high or to paste “peace” logos on a blog, however, this man is an action figure of a peacemaker. No one could possibly long for peace more than he, as he is on the front line. Those who enjoy nights of blissful sleep upon feathery soft beds should say a prayer of gratitude for men and women like him who carry the weight and burdens of peacemaking. Wear ephemeral ribbons and chant “peace in our time, give us peace”, because this man is the guardian of the freedom to do such things.
