May today find us calm and collected, settled in our minds and bodies. May we recall how to relax in the midst of strife. The world is a clamor, a cacophony, a constant din. Punctuations of silence are blessings to be cherished. May we be the creators of peace and quite, not only for ourselves, but also for the edification of our sisters and brothers. Practice peace that we may become better at it. For our peaceful practice we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
